New York Citya€™s school bus drivers, who transport over 150,000 students, including preschoolers and those with special education needs, may soon strike in response to provocations by the citya€™s Department of Education. Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1181, whose members include over 9,000 yellow bus drivers, matrons and mechanics, has said that it will call a strike this week if job security provisions are not respected by the city in its bids for services. On December 21, the citya€™s billionaire mayor, Michael Bloomberg, announced that when current contracts with private bus companies expire in July 2013 the city will accept competitive bids for 1,100 of its routes, about one sixth of the total.
The new bids do not require companies picked to observe seniority provisions or pay rates that workers now receive. Bus companies that pay far lower wages to their drivers will be able to outbid the companies now holding the contracts. The DOE has announced plans to distribute free Metro Cards (for use on city buses and subways) to parents and to reimburse parents who drive their children to school.
The plan exhibits the same disregard for parents and for the students themselves that is reflected in the citya€™s proposal of what amounts to a program of putting poorly trained and inexperienced drivers behind the wheels of school buses. In July 2011 Bloomberg asked New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo to veto a bill that would have extended the protections in bus contracts. In 2011, according to the New York Times, lawyers for the city told the Court of Appeals that the locala€™s president, Michael Cordiello, a€?repeatedly warned the city that his union a€?could not control a systemwide wildcat strike by its members.a€™a€? This indicates a real fear by the ATU bureaucracy that any action by bus drivers could quickly spread out of its control. Given the history of city, state and court efforts to destroy the living standards and job security of the school bus drivers, Bloomberga€™s attempt last week to invoke last falla€™s hurricane in order to denounce the drivers was especially brazen.
Drivers and their supporters rallied on Friday at City Hall to protest Bloomberga€™s efforts to eliminate seniority rights and wage standards.
WSWS reporters spoke to some school bus drivers, members of Local 1181, on Monday as they waited for children leaving a Manhattan elementary public school.
John Barone, a driver for 18 years, said, a€?The contract for drivers working for companies that transport special education ended at the beginning of the school year, but the union has been trying to negotiate. Manuel Ruiz, with 12 yearsa€™ experience driving school buses, told the WSWS, a€?I have only special education students as passengers. The strike comes as a result of the city's effort to cut transportation costs and its consideration of contracts with private companies. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the state Court of Appeals barred the city from including the EPP clause, and therefore, they can't include it. City officials said they are offering MetroCards for students and reimbursing parents for mileage during the strike, as well as reimbursing for taxi and car services.

Mazel Tov, Mayor Bloomberg!As VIN probably realized, I'm always the first to bash the mayor when he comes up with his dictates and decrees limiting our freedom, be it bike lanes, 16 oz cups, metzitze b'peh, salt, foam cups etc. Bike lanes limit the freedom of those who can't wear a wide load sign walking on the sidewalk. But the costs associated with the decrees are passed on to the consumer!!!Plus the costs associated with stores closing or laying workers off hurts everyone!Why can't you figure that out?

One day after Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 warned of a possible strike if its school bus drivers' salaries aren't boosted by a private bus company, Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed little concern about the threat."We remain confident that these issues will be resolved. These rights, won by workers after a 16-week strike in 1979, are known as the Employee Protection Provision (EPP). This plan does not even begin to address the basic needs of thousands of parents who are unable to accompany their children on public transportation, often in chaotic and crowded rush-hour conditions, or who do not own cars.
The union is nervous about the decision to eliminate the EPP from bids because it fears the loss of dues income.
16 (UPI) -- A union that represents 8,000 school bus drivers in New York City went on strike Wednesday, leaving 150,000 students without a ride to school, officials said.
The union is worried current drivers could lose their jobs if the city decides to go with a private company, union officials said. Sadia Awan, 34, ended up taking her seventh-grader to school herself because their bus didn’t come. But he estimated the city saved $80 million because it wasn’t paying bus companies during the strike. This time I'm here to applaud the mayor for his strong stance against the unions who destroy our economy.
