Vote on Proposed Contract Will Occur

 

Burlington, VT (March 9, 2014) – CCTA is pleased to report that service will operate as scheduled on Monday, March 10, 2014.

 

CCTA and the Union met for negotiations on March 8 with the assistance of the Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service. Through 19 hours of negotiations that concluded early in the morning Sunday, March 9, CCTA delivered a complete contract proposal to the Union. The driver’s Union has agreed to bring the contract proposal to a vote and to delay any labor action until the latest proposal is voted on by the drivers.
