A strike by school bus drivers servicing approximately 10,000 students across Durham region and parts of Toronto has been averted after the union representing them reached a last-minute, tentative deal with busing company First Student Canada.
“DSTS will continue to monitor First Student and Unifor negotiations,” the release said. “Should there be any updates regarding the tentative agreement, parents/guardians will be notified by automated call and letter notification from the school.”
Unifor Ontario regional director Naureen Rizvi had said Friday that the union hoped to reach a “fair deal” with the company, saying “it’s simply unfair to expect school bus drivers to continue to accept subpar wages and do unpaid work.”
