Buses Still Rolling in Phoenix: Union Contracts Extended Until October 3
Once again, contracts have been extended for Veolia Transportation workers. Pushing back -- yet again -- the possibility of a bus strike in Phoenix.
The contracts, which would have expired at midnight on Thursday, for Veolia's maintenance staff, represented by Teamsters Local 104, are now good through October. 3.
It appears that the Amalgamated Transit Union Local No. 1433, which represents bus operators, also agreed to the October 3 extension. The International Union of Operating Engineers 428 (bus mechanics' union) had already extended contracts to October 3.
