Drivers Seek Job Security, Protections
School bus drivers with H&L Bloom in Attleboro, Mass., have voted by a nearly 2-1 margin to join Teamsters Local 653 in South Easton, Mass., seeking job security and workplace protections.
They join the 14 school bus drivers for children with special needs, employed directly by the Attleboro School District, who became Teamsters Local 653 members in June.
“Our local union has seven other school districts under contract, including at First Student and Lucini Bus Lines,” said Michael Clark, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 653. “These workers are looking for job security and the protection that our other members have under Teamsters bus contracts.”
