CATS employees are unhappy, disgruntled, and they are showing it. Just last week on Wednesday more than 100 employees called out of work and today June 29 more than 90 workers have called out of work so they are warning people that the buses will be extremely late and some may not show to certain bus stops at all.
There is currently talk of raising pay for drivers to the highest in CATS history, and Lewis said the organization is also looking at four-day work weeks, flexible schedules and other incentives to raise employee morale. He said CATS could make a short-term fix by limiting rides and stops on weekends, using fewer employees and allowing the system to catch up on job vacancies.
CATS encouraged passengers to download its app for real-time data on routes and delays.
If you normally use the CATS buses it is encouraged that you find a ride because there will be intermittent delays. What needs to be done in order to make the CATS employees feel safe and happy in their workplace.
