Citi Bike workers become first in nation to take a labor ride
Source: BIZJOURNALS.COM

Citi Bike workers have a new labor contract, just months after joining the Transport Workers Union, becoming the nation’s first employees of a bike-share program to reach such an agreement.

About 200 people are covered under the new deal, the New York Times reported, and the contract calls for pay raises of at least $1.50 per hour immediately, with additional increases over the next four-and-a-half years. By the end of the contract, in 2020, the Wall Street Journal added, workers’ wages will have risen by more than 20 percent, on average.

In addition to pay raises, the WSJ said the deal includes eight weeks of paid parental leave, five sick days, medical benefits, a 401(k) program, and guarantees that Motivate, Citi Bike’s parent company, won’t reduce headcount below present levels.

TWU President John Samuelson told the New York Daily News that beyond pay and benefits, the contract also addresses a key complaint from workers, that scheduling was not consistent enough.
