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.
Drivers say they’re unhappy with recent changes to their health care plan. They want raised healthcare costs to come back down. They also want to be able to pay for their insurance out-of-pocket.
So far, they RTA has offered drivers 3 different contacts, but drivers have turned all of them down.
