District 51 bus drivers contemplate strike if contract isn't settled

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - School bus drivers for Mesa County's District 51 say they're contemplating striking if they can't work out a contract with their employer, Ohio-based First Student, Inc..

A representative for the the bus drivers and monitors says they are meeting this week with their union representatives to draft a new contract. If first student employees can't work out a deal with their higher-ups, than District 51 could be out of transportation, should the strike go through. First Student workers say they want to be fairly compensated. They say they already continued working long enough without a new contract.
