Could a Strike Curb Martha's Vineyard Buses this Summer?
Capecod.com— Bus drivers with the Martha’s Vineyard Transit Authority have voted in favor of a strike in the event they cannot come to terms with agency officials.
They say they want health and safety improvements, and wage increases along with changes to disciplinary and due process procedures.
The drivers are threatening to strike during the busy summer season if they can’t get an agreement with management.
No date for an actual strike has been set so far as the two sides continue to negotiate.
