metro transit bus ii Bus Drivers Vote on Contract Offer

Some 2,200 bus drivers and train engineers are voting on a contract offer from Metro Transit – with results being released tonight. But the union is predicting rejection. An official of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1005 says the offer includes a wage freeze and increases in health premiums over the next two years, and it’s asking too much for the union to take a ‘double hit.’ If the drivers do reject the offer, it’s possible another offer will be voted on in the future, before a strike would be considered. The last bus strike in the Twin Cities was in 2004.
