A potential bus strike in Phoenix is becoming more of a threat.

A vote passed Wednesday night to authorize the head of the union to call for a strike.

This doesn't mean a strike will happen, but it keeps the possibility on the table.

Union officials say they've been given a "final contract offer," and if they're not happy with it, then a strike could be ordered.

This affects nearly three dozen routes in Phoenix. Including the main routes that go up and down Central Avenue, 7th Street and 7th Avenue.
