CATS operators vote against recent contract

5

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – CATS operators have voted down a recent contract. 

Multiple sources tell WBTV the vote failed 198-4

Operators tell us that they had issues with pay, medical insurance and safety, which they imagine aren’t being addressed.

Now, the union goes back to negotiating their contract with RATP Dev, the corporate hired to run town’s bus system. This doesn’t mean a strike though.

CATS Operators would need to vote against a recent contract two more times before they potentially walk off the job.

CATS operators voted down a recent contract from RATP Dev 198-4. Operators tell me that they had issues with the pay, medical insurance and lack of safety problems addressed.

No strike. There would should be no less than two more no votes on renegotiated contracts.
