DAYTON (WDTN) — A strike date has been set by the union representing Greater Dayton RTA bus drivers.

A union representative told the Dayton City Commission the strike date will be announced at a later date.

The strike would impact RTA drivers and mechanics.

The union approved a strike in November, following weeks of contract negotiations with RTA.
