VT Transportation Authority To Meet With Union

Mar 21, 2014

The Chittenden County Transportation Authority in Vermont says it will attend a mediated meeting this weekend with the bus drivers' union in hopes of ending a strike.

CCTA says it received a written proposal from the union representing about 70 bus drivers Thursday morning.

The drivers went on strike Monday after rejecting a proposed contract and a call by the company for binding arbitration.

The union says the most important issues separating the two sides are working conditions and discipline.

Union officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
