MORE THAN 350 people, packed the hall. Metro’s ATU employees have not seen a pay increase since 2008 and have been without a contract since 2009. Among the sticking points are Metro’s efforts to turn its defined benefit pension plan into a 401(k) plan, or have Local 788 take over the pension program.
