Boston school bus drivers involved in strike face disciplinary action

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON ( -- A school bus contractor for Boston Public Schools is handing out more penalties to drivers involved in an illegal bus strike last month.

Veolia Transportation has fired two additional drivers accused of organizing the Oct. 8 strike, bringing the total of terminated drivers to four.

The company also plans to send out letters of reprimand to 680 drivers who participated in the strike. The letter will remain in their personnel file for 13 months.

John McDonough, Interim Superintendent for Boston Public Schools, tells the Boston Globe he hopes the dispute between the bus drivers union and the school system will be resolved soon. The union had raised issues about pay, work conditions, and respect.
