CTTransit workers ratify three-year pact

More than 700 Connecticut Transit bus drivers and maintenance workers approved a new contract with management for a three-year contract that avoided a threatened strike. According to the Stamford Advocate, the deal with CTTransit was approved Sunday with members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 281. The union represents workers in CTTransit’s Hartford, New Haven and Stamford markets. Drivers and mechanics will now receive health care premium contributions for the first time. That sticking point led to two contract proposals being rejected in December. The last strike occurred in 1972. For more, visit www.stamfordadvocate.com.
