A group of Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) bus drivers picketed at Five Corners Wednesday morning to protest what they say is a lack of progress on a union contract.

Organized under the Amalgamated Transit Union, the drivers have been in talks since April with Transit Connection Inc. (TCI), the private contractor that manages drivers for the VTA.

TCI representatives traveled to the Island this week for negotiating sessions.

“We haven’t agreed to anything,” said Greg Dash, a negotiator for TCI. “We’re continuing to talk.”

On Monday, the union delivered a petition from drivers to the local manager of TCI demanding a fair contract.

“Operators are seeking fair discipline and due process, health and safety improvements, wage increases in line with the rising cost of living on Martha’s Vineyard, and dignity and respect on the job,” the petition said.
