    Default Bus strike: GET board meets to consider union proposal

    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) - With the city's bus strike in its second week, a closed meeting was held Tuesday to consider a new union proposal.
    Union drivers, mechanics and other support staff went on strike July 15, unhappy with pay and the part-time status for more than half of their GET drivers. The union was asking for a 4 percent wage increase every year over a three-year deal.
    Tuesday morning, Teamsters Local 517 Secretary-Treasurer Chester Suniga wouldn't give out details of the latest proposal, but driver Gordon Hart said he's not happy with what he's heard.

    Union official: GET board rejects offer, strike to continue

    Negotiation teams for both GET and the Teamsters Union met Wednesday morning. But before noon, union reps told members there was no deal.

    "Unfortunately when we met with them today the offer that they were considering yesterday was rejected," Business Agent Gary Jenkins told the strikers. He said GET came back with a new offer. "And, in our opinion it was nothing that we'd even bring back to you guys."
