Here is the latest news on the Paratransit drivers strike which has affected thousands of chronically ill & disabled riders. According to The Para Transit Drivers and Mechanics of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181-1061 & Paratransit Operators Coalition, both sides will return to the bargaining table later today. The union which has 1500 members will continue to strike while both sides try to hammer out a deal.
Lets hope both sides can come to a satisfiable agreement for both sides so full service can be available to the approximately 8000 people who depend on this service daily.
