Larry Hanley, international vice president of the Amalgamated Transit Union and chief negotiator for striking DeCamp bus drivers, has texted Baristanet to tell us that Assemblyman Thomas Giblin has brokered a deal that will have drivers going back to work.
DeCamp has just updated its website with the news:
DeCamp Bus Lines and the union representing the drivers, mechanics and cleaners have agreed to a cooling off period. DeCamp commuter service will resume on Wednesday September 15, 2010. DeCamp Bus Lines apologizes for the inconvenience this problem has caused commuters. We thank all our passengers for their understanding during this difficult time.
According to Hanley, Giblin negotiated an indefinite “cooling off period” and a “return to work.”
