Tempe Bus Strike Ends, But Union Still Upset With French Company

Tempe bus drivers ratify contract

Buses will roll today, but union still mad at company

Tempe bus drivers will return to work today after overwhelmingly accepting a labor agreement with their employer, but drivers continued to express deep animosity toward Veolia Transportation Services.
The Tempe contract passed Friday with 90 percent of the vote.

The end of a seven-day bus strike by Tempe drivers and today's restoration of bus service make the Valley Metro system whole again after Phoenix union drivers agreed to a separate settlement with Veolia on Thursday.
But the union made it clear that its battle with Veolia, a French company, is far from over.
