Thursday, December 7, 2017 – Bus Driver Labour Negotiations Update for
Students and Families On Bus Routes Operated by First Student’s Bowmanville
**Please note: this message applies only to Clarington
and Northumberland schools served by First Student buses. Please see below for
the full list of affected schools.
This note provides information on ongoing contract negotiations between
First Student and Unifor, the union representing the company’s Bowmanville
school bus drivers.
The company remains optimistic that a settlement will be reached.
If a settlement is not reached, however, job action could occur as early as
Monday, December 11. We have been assured that we will be given at least
72 hours (three days) notice if the school bus drivers vote to take any action
that would affect student busing.
Therefore, we encourage families of students who attend KPR schools in
Clarington and Northumberland to:
·consider having alternative plans for getting their
children to school in case of a possible strike
·check the stsco.ca
website often, and stay tuned to local news media, for any possible updates.
We will provide further updates to families as information becomes
available in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, busing will continue
to follow the usual schedule, unless we become aware of a change. KPR schools
and Student Transportation Services of Central Ontario (STSCO) will let
families know of any possible changes through stsco.ca,
kprschools.ca, school Edsby accounts and
newsletters, Twitter (@kprschools) and Facebook.
**Please note: Only the
following schools with First Student bus routes will be affected:
Bus Driver Labour Negotiations Update for Routes Operated by First Student’s Bowmanville Branch in Clarington and Northumberland
A tentative agreement has been reached in contract negotiations between First Student and Unifor, the union representing the company’s Bowmanville school bus drivers, following three days of strike action.
Busing for all students will resume as usual on Monday, March 26.
STSCO is pleased that both sides have been able to reach a tentative agreement. Bus drivers do an excellent job transporting our students safely to and from school each day and we are happy that they will be able to return to work on Monday.
