CityLink GM Announces Retirement


CityLink General Manager Al Stanek is retiring at the end of year. Stanek has served in the position since February 2015. His retirement announcement comes as the Regional Mass Transit Authority continues to negotiate with its bus driver’s.

CityLink’s contract with the Amalgamated Transit Union Workers Local 416 expired November 30th just after the union voted unanimously to strike. Since, the two parties have agreed on a contract extension through January and are returning to the negotiating table.  

But one of the issues that came up during the most contentious part of negotiations was Stanek’s four day workweek and his Wisconsin residency.

66-year-old Stanek says he plans to return to Wisconsin to spend more time with his family.
