One Union, One Contract – Three Different Bus Yards, Owned and Operated by First Student, Fight for Solidarity
“This year Bus Yard contracts are up for negotiation and our CSEA bus yard members are active in the fight to secure a strong contract. This year’s goals, however, far outweigh year’s past as they are fighting to build power among various chapters by working together to set industry standards through collective bargaining. Our three Bus Yards under First Student–New Haven (with nearly 400 drivers & monitors), West Hartford (with nearly 130 drivers), and New London (with 70 drivers & monitors)–collectively representing almost 600 bus workers, are fighting to be represented under one contract, rather than three.”
|“Before the Union, we were making $6 an hour and we had to sit outside. Now that we have the union we are over $22 an hour, and get the respect from the boss that we deserve”
