LOWER LAKE -- Cars, trucks and buses honked as they drove by bouncing yellow picket signs Monday in Lower Lake.

About 30 people were on strike and will continue today, in Lower Lake, Lakeport and Clearlake protesting lack of raises for Paratransit employees, Business Representative of Teamsters Local Union No. 665 Mike Yates said.

The Teamsters are currently in negotiations with Paratransit Services, the company contracted by Lake Transit to handle transit services in the area, and will meet with them on July 17 in hopes of signing a contract and preventing further strikes, Yates said.
