December 7, 2017

Durham Student Transportation Services (DSTS) has been notified by First Student Canada that Unifor 4268, the union representing First Student Bowmanville school bus drivers are currently in a legal strike position. This means with 72 hours notice the union may take labour action or strike.

While, negotiations are ongoing between First Student and Unifor 4268 and there has been no indication of a plan to strike, the Durham District School Board and the Durham Catholic District School Board believe it is important that families know in advance that a school bus driver strike may be possible. 

DSTS will continue to monitor First Student and Unifor negotiations. Should there be any updates parents/guardians will be notified.
