We will fight to SAVE BUSING!

What has Bloomberg’s DOE done to school bus riders?

  • Provoked a strike by attacking the seniority hiring list known as EPP; then bragged about saving money while thousands lost instruction & therapies

 

  • During the strike, DOE memo to bus companies said to “replace” fully trained attendants, who know about disabilities, with hastily certified 2nd drivers; DOE did not respond to numerous accidents and safety violations

 

  • After the strike, DOE let several companies lock out experienced workers, leaving many students without a reliable bus; let companies keep less skilled, lower paid ‘replacements’ past the maximum time on the memo

 

  • Now silent, while their own contractors try to turn special and general education busing into a part-time casual workforce without a living wage. 

Does DOE care about students or about profit margins of bus corporations?

Transportation is part of the civil right to a Free, Appropriate Public Education!  Destroying the working conditions on the bus means destroying the riding conditions!  Do we have to have a school boycott to get this taken seriously?
