(WILLINGBORO, N.J.) – Bus operators and monitors at Student Transportation of America (STA) have voted overwhelmingly to join Teamsters Local 676. These members provide transportation services for Willingboro Township Public Schools and Edgewater Park School District.

“Local 676 is proud to represent hundreds of bus workers, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome 123 more to the Teamsters,” said Howard Wells, President of Local 676 in Collingswood. “We are looking forward to helping STA workers in Willingboro secure an industry-leading first contract.”

“I voted to join the Teamsters because positive change cannot happen without union representation,” said Jermaine Shield, a bus driver at STA in Willingboro.

Teamsters Local 676 represents approximately 5,000 workers employed in a variety of trades in Southern New Jersey and the Philadelphia region. For more information, visit
