Progress Through Unity

Uniform Information request

The carrier is preparing to put the uniform supply contract up for bid and we are requesting input from the membership.  Requests from the membership will be attached to the criteria attached to the bid, allowing for our voice to be heard. I am asking for feedback on any level of uniform concerns please provide details if possible. Suggestions should be sent to;

Items already under consideration include;

  • Overall quality
  • Proper measuring/tailoring
  • Proper fitting particularly neck size and tapering on shirts
  • The availability of brick and mortar locations
  • The availability of supplier on site to make alterations and exchanges
  • Availability of women’s cut uniforms
  • Yard uniform prices and selection.

If members purchase their own uniform components we would like to know the manufacturer or store where purchased and materials involved.

Members are encouraged to take advantage of the online ordering (complete instructions are in the division notice), currently the most accurate way to order.   It ensures sizes, styles and addresses are correct allowing you to track your order and request return tags. Most importantly there is a record to facilitate disputes with the uniform provider.

At this time the uniform colors or style are not going to be updated but may be in the future.  Currently NJ Transit would like to get wearable uniforms that are durable and look professional along with an adequate provider.

Thanks for your help.
