At Issue: CCTA strike's impact on students

Posted: Updated:

Striking Burlington bus drivers are expected to meet with management and a mediator this weekend.

We're starting the sixth day of a strike that has left about ten thousand riders a day stranded.

It also impacts more than 2,000 students trying to get to school and that is "At Issue" this morning. We talked to Burlington School Superintendent Jeanne Collins.

Since negotiations broke down, the union has not released a specific list of make or break needs.

Union officials did tell WCAX that if CCTA offered a 12.5 hour split-shift instead of the 13.5 hour proposal, they would be more inclined to work with CCTA on other issues.
