    TARC employees push for negotiations as labor contract nears expiration

    August 31, 2022 // TARC Marketing and Communications Director Jenny Recktenwald said in a previous email sent to Wave News: “(Union-proposed) increases would equal a $55 million increase in TARC’s operating budget over the next three years, which would result in TARC running out of money by the end of 2024.” The union said they’ve already met with management 10 times to ask for contract negotiations, but have been denied. They wish Metro Council would show more support. ”Why are we hiring a union corporate lawyer to negotiate? How much are we paying him? How much is that costing the city of Louisville to drag on these negotiations instead of coming to a fair contract,” Londrigan said.
