CAT management, union reach contract agreement

Posted: Updated:

Capital Area Transit's management and union have reached a contract agreement in principle.

Bill Jones, CAT's general manager, and John Keller, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1436, made the announcement in a joint news release Tuesday.

Jones said the agreement in principle is pending approval by the CAT board of directors and the full union membership.

He said the contract details will not be discussed until the tentative agreement has been approved by both parties.

Keller said the deal eliminates the need for arbitration.

CAT's union bus drivers had been working without a new contract since July 1, 2013.
