After spending 13 non-stop hours at the negotiating table, both leaders at the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1385 were able to reach an agreement Wednesday evening. The agreement – by which details are still yet to be publicly announced – ends months of contention between the two parties as well as a three-day strike by unionized transit workers. Both sides must formally vote for the agreement, but as of now, there does not appear to be any issues that would prevent respective votes from being held.
The RTA has announced through its social media feeds, that regular transit and paratransit services will resume on Friday, January 13, 2017.
