(Maryland Heights, MO)—School bus drivers in Washington, Mo. voted overwhelmingly to join Teamsters Local 610 on Wednesday. The 95 drivers and monitors are seeking fair wages, a voice on the job and an end to favoritism.
“My co-coworkers and I are hard working men and women who deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. We should share in some of the wealth of this corporation because we help make this company successful each and every day,” said First Student driver James Parson. “Now that we’re Teamsters, we will have a voice.”
