Another School Bus Success
The drivers and monitors who work at First Student in Rock Falls voted by a nearly 2-1 margin to join Teamsters Local 722. The 72 workers united over a need for affordable health insurance, respect and a say in their working conditions.
Here are some statements from the new Teamster members, who are excited about their victory, and ready to get to work on a Teamster contract:
“Achieving the “Yes” vote for the Teamsters is giving us all the chance for developing respect, creating unity in the workplace and making informed decisions for a structured future. Thank you to our Teamster brothers and sisters for all of their support!”
