Striking Vt. bus drivers say walkout to continue

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Vermont bus drivers say the strike will continue following their meeting with the Chittenden County Transportation Authority over the weekend.

Speaking at a Monday news conference, leaders of the bus drivers union say CCTA did not accept parts of a union offer during a Saturday negotiating session.

The strike began March 17 and has affected nearly 10,000 passengers.

CCTA general manager Bill Watterson says there are four main issues still in dispute — wages, disciplinary action prompted by anonymous tips, part-time drivers and split shifts.

The drivers say they aren't concerned with money, but respect and keeping safe work conditions.
