School bus drivers with Eastern Bus Company in Newton, Mass., have voted by more than a 4-1 margin to join Teamsters Local 25 in Boston. The 34 drivers united for respect, fairness and consistency in their working conditions. 

“These hardworking school bus drivers were brave to do what they did, to stand together and organize for a better workplace. We are proud to represent them and to welcome our newest brothers and sisters into our Teamster family,” said Sean M. O’Brien, President of Local 25.

Laniel Beauge, a driver with Eastern Bus, is happy to be a Teamster and is looking forward to having a Teamster contract.
