The University of Vermont shuttle service will remain in-house, saving the jobs of shuttle drivers represented by UE Local 267. The university administration informed the union of its decision on Feb. 15.
The UE local and students had launched a campaign that demonstrated wide campus and community support for the drivers. More than 1,100 students, staff, faculty and community members signed a petition supporting retention of the shuttle service.
The administration concluded that the shuttle service provided by UE members was the best product for the best price.
