The work environment changes in each department as well as division to division. Maintenance and Operators each have different challenges that are overcome by good teamwork and determination. Also each bus garage and the main shop have their specific challenges to that location. Once again good teamwork and determination overcome these challenges. The culture is overall is strength in unity. However, there is a distinct seperation between Operators and maintenance that can create problems between the two departments. I believe we need to bridge this gap as it would make for an overall stronger union. All that said there are few to none other jobs in the Pittsburgh area that pay as well and or offer the same benefits port authority does.
