COTA contract talks to be held Sunday
Central Ohio Transit Authority officials and the union representing its bus drivers and mechanics have scheduled contract talks for Sunday to resolve the salary issues that are holding up a new deal. The Transport Workers Union rejected a tentative agreement that included raises and higher worker contributions to pensions. COTA's bus drivers and mechanics could walk off the job Monday without a contract. Columbus safety officials have encouraged those who plan on attending the July 3rd fireworks show downtown to carpool in case of a strike.
