Virginian bus drivers reject contract

Richmond, Virginia, USA.
The regional transit system's union members have rejected a tentative labor agreement for the second time, but management say they will not deviate from their current offer of no layoffs and no cuts in wages and benefits.
The company's contract proposal "was turned down overwhelmingly" by the union's membership in a vote Sunday, said Deloris Coker, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union's Local. 1220.http://www2.timesdispatch.com
