CCTA driver Rob Slingerland and former driver Chuck Norris-Brown explain the core issues in their dispute with management:
1. SAFE & REASONABLE WORKING CONDITIONS: Management wants to extend the length of split-shifts to 13 ½ hours. This extension of already long hours raises safety issues for everyone on the road.
2. FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT: Management wants to bring in more part-time workers. Drivers do not want to see full-time jobs being turned into part-time work. We want our drivers to have livable jobs.
EQUAL TIME is where Vermonters talk about issues ignored by the corporate media—mothers opposing toxic pollution, workers fighting for decent jobs, nurses working for health care reform, students speaking out about their education, farmers struggling against corporate agribusiness, and more.
