CATS employees protest
BATON ROUGE- Bus Drivers for the Capital Area Transit System are speaking out against their CEO.
Dozens of drivers switched shifts in protests over the weekend. They say they're protesting against Bob Mirabito for a range of issues that include: not handling customer complaints, safety issues, and firing employees for no reason.
Drivers say they want to be able to serve their customers, and want a CEO that will do the same.
"Something needs to be done," said Transit Union member, Naomi Guy. "We've gone to the CATS board numerous times and I've contacted the board chair and asked her for help, but it seems like no one is listening."
Drivers have another protest planned for today, leading up to tomorrow's CATS board meeting.
