Cap Metro Preps Layoffs in Labor Transition; Says Most Employees Will Be Offered Jobs
Capital Metro is laying off more than 800 union employees as it prepares to outsource those jobs to two contractors.
The transit agency says the union workers will be offered jobs under the new operators, as long as they can pass driving and drug tests.
More than 50 supervisors are also being laid off. They are not part of the union so they are not guaranteed new jobs, but will be given first consideration, Cap Metro says.
