Shane said the union's demands at
Monday's City Council meeting "to get
AATA back to the table and bargain in
good faith" were rejected by the
mayor. "They said they couldn't get in-
volved and yet they're involved enough
to select AATA board members and to
deny us a permit to demonstrate - this
whole thing is a sham and a
smokescreen," he said.
Mayor Louis Belcher said TEU was,
originally denied a permit because
people who eat their lunches at Liberty
Plaza should have the right to eat in
peace and quiet. The permit was gran-
ted after the union protested the denial.
"THE AATA Board of Directors was
set up autonomously to budget and
make decisions," Belcher said. "City
Council has no legal authority to inter-
fere with the Board."
Belcher criticized the union for
asking him to force negotiations when
they had publicly stated they had
reached a "rock bottom" position.
"Nothing further can be done on my
part or anybody else's if this is indeed
their final proposal," he said.
"But our main concern," Belcher ad-
ded, "is the long-term liability of
AATA." Belcher explained that any in-
crease in funding will have to come out
of ridership fares because federal and,
state allocations will remain the same
and taxpayers will not approve a
millage hike.
