Local 85

4-17-2020

While it is OUR (Local 85) position that all employees should wear masks for their own safety, we also believe all patrons on our busses and LRV's should be wearing them as well. (From Pass Law firm) In my view, the  above language applies to an operator operating a mass transit vehicle in  revenue service and customers who ride the bus. In other words, I do not see any  exemptions or exceptions for bus operators, mass transit vehicles or passengers  on a mass transit vehicle. However, based upon our call with Cetra earlier  today, apparently Port Authority was informally informed by PENNDOT that it does not consider transit vehicles “work sites” at  paragraph A (10) nor “premises” at paragraph B (6) that requires wearing a mask by either an operator on a bus or a passenger while riding a bus.   According to Mike Cetra, he is supposed to get formal written guidance on  this interpretation from the state.    Therefore, until they do  receive formal written guidance from the state otherwise, PAT is maintaining  their current position which is they are not requiring but rather “strongly  recommending” operators wear masks and that they cannot require passengers to  wear a mask while on a vehicle. In the  interim, until PAT gets formal guidance from PENNDOT or the Governor’s office, I  suggest that Local 85 take the position with its members that they wear masks at  all time. Please keep in mind that while we, as the Union, do not have the  authority to “order” employees,  I would nonetheless make it very clear  that it is our position masks be worn at all times by operators and passengers.  Obviously, given the work environment in which we labor, I would advance this  position in a manner that absolutely stresses that health and safety lie at the  foundation of our position.
