Bus drivers from Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 who went on strike on Jan. 11 hope the Board of Supervisors will jump-start stalled contract negotiations.

Driver Sandra Vigil told the board on Tuesday that when Keolis North America was awarded the Loudoun County Transit and Commuter Services contract in 2021, they cut company 401k contributions from 6% to 1%. She said worker health care premiums increased from what was paid under the previous contractor.
