Possible strike of bus drivers could be problem for F-1

Austin's city bus drivers' union president is telling us he sees a drivers' strike happening between now and Formula-One race weekend if the union and the bus agency do not reach an agreement. Union local president Jay Wyatt says McDonald Transit is trying to boost medical insurance premiums, not collect union dues and replace employees with lower-paid drivers, "Just leave this contract in place until August of 2013 and all of this can be avoided."

Wyatt accuses the bus agency and its contractor of attempting to bust the union. No word yet from the bus system.
