Meet with MTA's Chief Employee Relations & Administrative Officer

Anita Miller, ESQ. – Chief Employee Relations & Administration Officer, MTA


 In April 2015, Chairman and CEO Thomas F. Prendergast appointed Anita L. Miller to the newly-created position of Chief Employee Relations and Administrative Officer for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

In this role, Anita is responsible for setting strategic direction for all labor relations and human resources activities throughout MTA Headquarters and the MTA agencies.  As the chief labor contracts negotiator for the MTA, Anita is also responsible for briefing and advising the MTA Chairman and the MTA Board on all significant labor-employment related issues, negotiating over 60 collective bargaining agreements, drafting labor relations policies, and representing the agency before the National Mediation Board and the Presidential Emergency Board.

During her career in public transportation, Anita has held the positions of Vice President of Labor Relations, Assistant Vice President of Research and Training, Labor Attorney and Labor Relations Hearing Officer.  Anita’s prior experience includes serving as Chief of the Employee Disciplinary Division for the New York City Housing Authority and Labor Relations Analyst for Beth Israel Medical Center.

Anita’s demonstrated history of fighting for indigent New Yorkers and workers’ rights provided her with a resourceful background to meet the challenges of representing the Nation’s largest public transportation agency during challenging times with its formidable labor partners.

In February 2000, Anita received a Proclamation from the City Council of the City of New York for implementing “lasting change” in both the labor and legal advocacy arenas during her 12 year tenure as a legal advocate with Legal Services for New York City, Brooklyn Branch, union delegate and then Co-President of the Legal Services Staff Association.

Anita presently serves as an Advisory Board Member for COMTO-New York Chapter and the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS-Greater NY Chapter). 

Anita received her Juris Doctorate from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo, School of Law and a Bachelor of Science in Politics, Economics and Society from the State University of New York-College at Old Westbury.  She is admitted to the New York State Bar.
