Workers At First Student (Bay Path) Dudley Charlton, Massachusetts Join Teamsters Local 170


(WORCESTER, Mass.) – On Friday, April 5, 2019 workers from First Student (Bay Path) voted overwhelmingly to join Teamsters Local 170. These workers are part of a growing movement of drivers and monitors who are organizing with the Teamsters Union because of the representation and benefits that come with a Teamster contract. 

“The solidarity that these First Student drivers maintained from start to finish in this organizing campaign is something to be very proud of,” Local 170 Secretary-Treasurer Shannon George said.

Founded in 1933, Teamsters Local 170 represents workers in a variety of industries throughout central Massachusetts. Visit for more information. “Like” us on Facebook at
