BURLINGTON, Vt. - CCTA bus drivers are planning to strike on Monday after rejecting a binding arbitration offer. 

A press rleease says bus drivers rejected the binding arbitration for the same reasons they rejected CCTA's last proposal. 

"Agreeing to binding arbitration does not move us closer to having safer working conditions, safer conditions for passengers and other drivers, or livable jobs," Driver Spokesperson Rob Slingerland said. Those are our core demands and what is necessary to reach a settlement.”

Drivers unanimously rejected the last best proposal by CCTA management Wednesday night. 

The last CCTA bus driver contract expired on June 30, 2013.
