Vt. bus drivers, union reach deal to avert strike
Question of the Day
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Chittenden County Transportation Authority says it has reached a deal with the union that represents almost 70 Vermont bus drivers, averting a strike.
The authority says 19 hours of negotiations ended Sunday morning, producing a contract proposal that the union will bring to a vote. Details of the proposal were not released.
The transit authority says passengers on its buses won’t experience any service disruptions.
The drivers had said they would strike Monday if no deal was reached. At issue during negotiations were working conditions, part-time drivers and working hours.
The drivers carry about 9,500 people a day in the state’s largest county.
