ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Union workers at Metro, the local transit agency, are meeting and greeting commuters this morning to call attention to their quest for a new contract.

Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 788 say they’ll be leafleting at several Metro stations including North Hanley and Shrewsbury.

The workers say they’ve gone years without a contract while Metro CEO John Nations is pulling down $250,000 a year.

Both sides say they’re far apart with pensions and medical coverage key concerns.
