The Passenger Transportation Division represents more than 50,000 drivers, monitors, aides, attendants, mechanics, dispatchers and more all across North America. Teamster members drive school buses, shuttles, coach vehicles, taxis and more, serving communities far and wide.
In June 2011, the Teamsters achieved an unprecedented victory by successfully negotiating and ratifying a National Master Agreement (NMA) with the largest company in the industry, First Student, Inc. The agreement is the only one of its kind in the industry and includes many benefits that set the bar on protections and workplace rights. In addition to the First Student NMA, the Teamsters have secured representation and contracts with the leading companies in the passenger transportation industry.
The Passenger Transportation Division is working on behalf of and in conjunction with workers, passengers and communities as a whole. The Teamsters are working with state and local officials to ensure that safety standards and the well-being of members are not sacrificed in the process of cost-saving measures. No matter who is in charge of transportation, we all deserve the reliable and safe service provided by an employer who respects its employees.
