To the Employees of the Milwaukee County Transit System:
I would like to take a minute to introduce myself. I am the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MV Transportation, the company that has been recommended to manage the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS). I know there are many questions, and I plan to communicate with you directly over the coming weeks in an effort to answer some of these questions, and to help you understand our company better.
The most frequent question asked to date is: After so many years working hard to serve the passengers of MCTS, what are the future plans for our pension under MV?
Let me be clear: Should MV be fortunate enough to become the next transportation services manager, you have my commitment as CEO that MV will continue the pension plan, make the contributions as required, and carry it forward for the length of time that MV is privileged to serve as the management company for the County of Milwaukee.
Since our beginnings as a family owned, privately held, woman and minority owned transportation company, MV has always prided itself on focusing on two things – taking care of our passengers and taking care of our employees. I commit to you that our company will work hard to provide safe and reliable transportation services in a bus that is clean and well maintained, and with a well‐trained workforce that provides great customer service each and every day.
MV has gained much experience over the years, and has a proven track record of extraordinary partnership with our client agencies. In the weeks to come, I will tell you more about our history, and give you very specific examples of how we will keep our promise to the County of Milwaukee, including the employee wages and benefits to be offered.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about MV. I sincerely hope to have the honor of providing transportation services to the citizens of this great county, and working with YOU to make this happen.
R. Carter Pate
Chief Executive Officer
MV Transportation, Inc.
