GET bus and union representatives expected to discuss negotiations Thursday morning

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - As the third day of the GET bus strike begins representative from both sides of the issue are expected to meet Thursday morning.

Supervisor Leticia Perez has invited both GET bus and union representatives to a meeting at the Kern County administration building at 8 am.

"There has essentially been a stalemate between both sides. In this case, they haven't spoke to each other in three days," Supervisor Perez said.

Drivers are pushing for a four percent increase for the next three years and more full-time employment. GET has said they are not sure they have the budget to fill these demands.

"They know that these are important services that we have to get moving right away," Perez said. "But we have to get to the table to resolve them [these issues]".
