Settlement near in case of drivers who sued former operator of Red Rose Access over wages. RRTA also sued firm.
A bitter two-year feud between the Red Rose Transit Authority and the company that once drove its Red Rose Access buses appears to be drawing to a close.
In the courts, anyway.
Within weeks, a settlement is expected in a lawsuit filed in October in federal court by 45 plaintiffs who had worked as drivers for Friendly Transportation’s parent company, Model Management Services, and a sister company called Pro Drivers Inc.
RRTA was also party to the lawsuit, which accused Lancaster-based Model Management, Pro Drivers and its executives of paying drivers less than they were supposed to be paid, refusing to pay overtime and, as a result, violating the terms of its contract with RRTA.
