CTA and CPT heads to meet
Following an approach from CTA Chairman Stephen Hickey to the new CPT President Chris Owens they are to meet to discuss whether Community Transport operations are taking work away from commercial operators unfairly. Stephen Hickey says he is concerned about the tone of some of the recent rhetoric on the subject and that this could be seriously damaging to the sector of the industry for which he is responsible. He believes that by working together the two sectors can come to an amicable working situation where both sides are clear about and respect each others rights. Chris Owens agrees and is asking for CPT members to provide him with any definitive evidence, not hearsay, they may have of where CT operations may have poached work from the commercial sector unfairly.
