“These guys aren’t getting the tools they need to do their jobs.” School Bus Drivers Hold Labor Action Thursday Morning |

On Thursday morning, after the end of the morning school outings, school bus drivers and Durham bus service attendants gathered outside the marshalling yard to draw attention to ongoing negotiations between Teamsters Local 959 which represents Durham bus drivers and services.

“We are trying to show Durham, the school board and the people of the Mat-Su Valley that we are united and that we are not going to back down from the issues we are discussing at the bargaining table,” said Patrick FitzGerald of Teamsters Local 959. “Safety is our primary concern, and requests for safety improvements have gone unanswered from the company (Durham). This action and the 98% approval of a strike vote show that we are united as a bargaining unit.
