Gov. Peter Shumlin urged drivers and management of the Chittenden County Transportation Authority on Tuesday to agree on a contract deal as soon as possible.
Amid the third week of the drivers’ strike over working hours and conditions, Shumlin expressed concern for the CCTA’s regular passengers.
"We’re talking about 10,000 people,” Shumlin said. “Some of the most vulnerable Vermonters, who can’t get to work. Kids who can’t get to doctors, you know, parents who can’t get to doctors appointments. I mean, we’ve got to get this thing resolved.”
