COTA Deal Can’t Head Off Driver Strike
Officials at the Central Ohio Transit Authority say theyâ€™ve reached a tentative agreement with the union representing about 600 drivers and mechanics, but there will still be a strikeâ€¦at least a short one.
Union officials said on Friday that they would strike even if they reached an agreement. The strike means there will be no fixed-route service today, but Will Call and non-ADA trips will not be affected.
Union members are expected to vote on the deal at a meeting tonight.
