Striking Vermont bus drivers said ready to talk

WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) Striking bus drivers in Vermont's largest county say they have a proposal and are ready to discuss it with the management of the Chittenden County Transportation Authority.

A number of the drivers and a Vermont Workers' Center representative made the comments Tuesday to the Burlington Free Press.

CCTA said it had not received the proposal by Tuesday evening but said it hopes it will be a compromise that would move both sides forward.

About 70 drivers went on strike Monday. Drivers say the main issues separating the two sides are working conditions, the length of split-shifts and discipline.

Burlington school officials say a small spike in absences among students on Monday disappeared and overall attendance was up Tuesday but the number of students who were late nearly doubled.
