Greater Dayton RTA labor dispute

13 05 2010

From the Dayton Daily News, this article gives an update on contract negotiations with bus drivers and mechanics.  The RTA board is projecting over half a million dollar (article sites $665,031) deficit.   As with most transit systems (and organizations), employee compensation accounts for more than half of operating budgets.  More than half of RTA’s budget comes from local sales tax, which not surprisingly are down.
