Statement from Mayor Martin J. Walsh on School Buses and Student Safety
August 26, 2014
"I'm being updated regularly on this situation, and have been informed that Veolia and the bus drivers union continue to negotiate a new contract in good faith. I expect that they will reach a resolution that will provide certainty for all families every day. This is what students and parents deserve.
"The current situation, however, does not appear to be about a new contract. It is unfortunate that a small group of drivers have refused to participate.
"I'm incredibly frustrated, and I know that parents, students, and school administrators and staff share this frustration. This is unacceptable, and I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure that students get to and from school safely."
