the CTA’s Second Chance Job Fair
The CTA’s Second Chance Job Fair is scheduled for Wednesday. CTA continues to search for train and bus operators and mechanics as it claws it’s way through the huge shortfall in staffing. The job fair is a part of an effort to attract and keep on board new recruits in order to achieve its goal of adding 700 bus drivers and 100 mechanics before 2023.
According to the agency’s statistics, more than 1,700 Chicagoans have received assistance from Second Chance. Since its inception, SCP has helped participants acquire the work skills and pathways to career that they need for permanent employment with the transit agency, CTA spokeswoman Brian Steele stated.
The program may be put on hold until both the CTA along with the two unions with which it works, come to an agreement to renew the contract. The result could be the loss of 63 Second Chance workers, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 President Kenneth Franklin told DNAinfo Radio Friday.
