DETROIT MAYOR ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING BUS SERVICE

 DETROIT MAYOR ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING BUS SERVICE
 DETROIT, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young


issued the following statement today regarding the Department of Transportation bus service:
 All scheduled D-DOT buses returned to regular service on all routes at 12:10 p.m. today.
 The delay in bus service on all D-DOT routes began at 4 a.m. today and was caused by an illegal work stoppage by 108 drivers in the Amalgamated Transit Union, Division 26.
 The illegal work stoppage began at 4 a.m. when bus drivers began reporting to work at the Shoemaker Terminal, where AFSCME Local 312, a mechanics union, was engaged in what the mechanics union called an informational picketing. The picketing did not impede the flow of traffic. All of the mechanics engaged in the picketing went to work as normally scheduled at 7:30 a.m. or 8:30 a.m.
 During the illegal work stoppage by bus drivers, buses were diverted from other routes to cover the affected eastside routes. This delayed bus service citywide but ensured that no D-DOT rider was left stranded.
 This illegal work stoppage was a deplorable incident that prevented Detroit workers from reaching their own jobs on time.
 None of the 108 bus drivers participating in the illegal work stoppage will be paid for any of the hours they did not work.
