BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

CATS bus drivers are officially getting a raise.

"We're getting the right people in here with the raises that are presented to you all so we can move forward," said one person who spoke at Tuesday night's board meeting.

The Capital Area Transit System Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a new two-year contract that includes a pay raise and changes to overtime rules as well as sick and vacation days. 

The contract was the result of a lengthy negotiation between union representatives and CATS management.
