Municipal Health Insurance, 2011
MTA President Paul Toner and several presidents of MTA locals made the case March 8 for a compromise plan that would achieve savings for municipalities and preserve employees' right to bargain about health care benefits.

"The MTA, like the other public employee unions, understands the grave fiscal crisis that has faced the Commonwealth for several years. We are here today to present a proposal that helps provide additional resources for our communities so that they can continue to provide the high-quality services – including public education and public safety – that we all value," Toner told the legislative panel. "Our proposal will help save jobs to keep our class sizes small, help all students succeed, and uphold the quality of our entire public education system."
