(NORTH HAMPTON, N.H.) – First Student bus drivers at the North Hampton, N.H. facility voted overwhelmingly to be represented by Teamsters Local 633. The workers provide student transportation services to the New Hampshire seacoast.
Business Agent Keith Judge and Field Representative Roger Travers successfully organized the yard under the direction and support of Local 633 Secretary-Treasurer Jeff Padellaro.
“It was a team effort by all involved; we welcome our brothers and sisters at this location into the Teamsters’ family and we look forward to negotiating a strong contract for our newest members,” Padellaro said. “I am proud to announce that First Student is wall-to-wall Teamsters throughout the state of New Hampshire. I want to thank Keith Judge, Roger Travers, and Shawn Gilman for their efforts in organizing this location. I would also be remiss if I did not recognize the efforts of the Local 633 shop stewards and members who contributed their time and effort to this great organizing victory. Member-to-member organizing is the most effective tool we have.”
