BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The bus drivers’ strike in Vermont’s largest county is continuing after another meeting between the union and bus company failed to reach a solution.
Union members tell WCAX-TV (http://bit.ly/1k4JWp8) that the two sides met on Friday with a federal mediator for 17 hours.
Unionized bus drivers have been on strike since March 17. The strike has hit students, immigrants and low-income Vermonters hard.
The two sides are haggling over wages, disciplinary action from anonymous tips, part-time drivers and split shifts.
CCTA officials said they had received a ‘‘credible’’ offer from the union that could be used as the basis for further negotiations but due to request of a federal mediator, they ‘‘cannot comment on the timing of the negotiations.’’
