CCTA Warns Riders of Possible Strike
BURLINGTON, Vt. - A pending strike could affect thousands of riders who use CCTA buses.
CCTA says out of concern and respect for their passengers, they are advising the public that there could be a strike by the drivers' union beginning Monday, March 10. If CCTA bus drivers do not report to work on Monday, there will not be transportation service provided by CCTA.
All routes except for a portion of the Montpelier LINK Express trips and 116 Commuter trips will be affected. Non-union drivers operate those routes.
CCTA and the drivers' union have a contract negotiation meeting on Saturday.
CCTA says they will provide updates when they informaiton becomes available. In the event of a strike, CCTA plans on notifying the public and impacted parties as quickly as they can.
Drivers say their biggest concerns are surveillance and discipline, safety, and part time drivers. CCTA released a pared down version of service Thursday.
FOX 44 and ABC 22 will provide updates when they become available.
