CCTA drivers poised for possible strike

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A bus drivers strike could be looming in Chittenden County.

CCTA and the Teamsters union have been in negotiations on a new contract for several months. CCTA says two settlement offers proposed on January 29th were rejected by the drivers over the weekend. CCTA says its disappointed by the rejection but remains open to further negotiations.
     
Union officials have said one key sticking point for drivers has been the amount of time they have to remain on call between shifts. The last contract two years ago was settled just hours before the drivers planned to go on strike.
