ATTENTION SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS & DRIVER ASSISTANTS

There is a bill pending in Albany that is extremely important to all of our school bus drivers and driver assistants regarding disqualifications.  This is Bill number S402. The purpose of this bill is to have school districts abide by your collective bargaining agreement with regard to disciplinary action.  Right now, employees of the transportation contractor of the school district have contractual protections covering disciplinary actions, but the school district is not a party to that contract.  Therefore, the school district is able to undertake disciplinary action against the employees of its contractor, without due process protections.  This legislation does not prevent the district from undertaking a disciplinary action, it merely requires the district to abide by the terms in an existing contract between its transportation contractor and its employees.

I urge all members to contact their State Senators today and let them know we need this bill passed without delay.  Follow the links to your representative and encourage them to pass bill number S402.
