Regional Transportation District (RTD) staff will suggest cutting 25-30% of budgeted positions, which could work out to about 635 employees losing their jobs, according to an internal memo to RTD staff Tuesday afternoon obtained by Next with Kyle Clark.
The proposed cuts include both salaried and union workers, according to the memo sent by RTD’s Interim CEO Paul Ballard.
The president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1001, Lance Longenbohm told Next representatives from RTD told him in a recent meeting that the agency was looking at eliminating 650 union-represented positions, 470 of which were filled.
