CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
The RTA bus driver who lost an appeal to get his job back earlier this month will have the support of the union as they file for arbitration on his behalf to get his job back.
Cell phone video surfaced last year that showed RTA driver Art Hughes belting a female passenger with an uppercut. He claimed that woman had assaulted him and spit on him.
The video ended up posted online, it went viral, and Hughes was fired.
Union President William Nix says Hughes filed a grievance with RTA, but he recently lost that grievance.
Criminal cases are moving through the courts–charges against the bus driver and the passenger. Both cases have been set for trial in the next several weeks.
Behind all this, the union and the Cleveland City Council Public Safety Committee are pushing RTA to take new steps to protect bus drivers.
