Vermont bus strike to end; both sides OK contract

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The bus drivers' strike in Vermont's largest county is set to end after both sides have approved a contract.

The Chittenden County Transportation Authority board ratified the contract Thursday evening, after drivers had approved the deal 53-6 earlier in the day.

The two sides had been haggling over wages, disciplinary action from anonymous tips, part-time drivers and split shifts.

The strike that began March 17 is the first in the 40-year history of the CCTA and presented challenges for school children and others who rely on the bus service.

The buses carry about 9,700 people a day, including about 2,400 Burlington public school students.
