Mother Nature keeps Brown Line stations open this weekend
Meanwhile, kudos to the CTA for posting the train ads reminding riders to patronize the many businesses that are still open and struggling at the Kedzie and Rockwell stations, scheduled to be closed for reconstruction for at least six months.
In other CTA news, the president of the bus drivers union said if the drivers strike, it wouldn't be for at least a month.
The Trib reports: " If a controversial bus-scheduling system known as rostering is still in effect at two garages on that date (April 9), Amalgamated Transit Union Local 241 President Darrell Jefferson said he will call a strike."
The bus-scheduling system is know as rostering. "CTA bus drivers are upset about rostering because it allows them less flexibility in choosing their runs and restricts how overtime is paid," says the Trib. "The process has been in effect at two of the CTA's eight garages since 2004, despite the union's request to end it."
"Jefferson is focusing on April 9 because that's when bus drivers' picks for new runs are set to take effect."
