Fair and Accurate Operations Committee
The CCTA Board of Commissioners is creating an Operations Committee in the aftermath of labor-management issues that ultimately resulted in a drivers strike that impacted thousands of riders.
We demand that the CCTA Commissioners include a way to allow for accurate and fair representation of CCTA transit drivers and riders and to work towards the creation of a positive, effective, and accountable management structure through this committee. We expect transparent and inclusive participation of the drivers and the riders by the selection of two representatives, one from each of these constituencies (drivers and riders), to the Operations Committee.
Appointing of Engaged and Qualified CCTA Board of Commissioners
Please sign this petition to the selectmen and selectwomen of Burlington, South Burlington, Winooski, Williston, Essex, Milton, Shelburne, and Hinesburg.
As elected members of the Town Selectboard, they are responsible for the appointing of CCTA Board Commissioners that are in touch with the current and ongoing need of creating a positive CCTA management culture that will promote a strong, supportive, and safe environment for all employees.
We the public demand a change in CCTA policy to require all newly appointed CCTA Board of Commissioners to demonstrate a commitment to the best interests of drivers, riders, and company, personal engagement in bus-ridership, and an ongoing and active understanding of operational procedures at CCTA.
We, the public and users of CCTA, demand the Commissioners regularly report back to Town meetings on how well this is handled.
This is important because of the pivotal role the CCTA Board of Commissioners plays in ensuring accountability, transparency, and excellence in their representation of transit management, drivers and riders.
