What Does an RMTD Driver Strike Mean for the Public?
On Sunday night Rockford Mass Transit Drivers alerted management that they would strike this Wednesday at 5 a.m. if their demands are not met, and so far no agreement has been made.
Wages, percentage paid for insurance, and two other unspecified issues are what is at stake, and if drivers do strike tomorrow morning, RMTD routes will be halted immediately leaving thousands of people in the Rockford area without a mode of transportation. No good. No good at all.
Let's hope a resolution is met in the next few hours, as so many riders cannot deal with the loss of wages or inconvenience this strike will cause.
