NYC school bus service will run uninterrupted next week, despite looming strike: union official

New York City’s yellow school bus services will not face disruptions from a bus worker strike next week as the new academic year begins, union officials confirmed Friday.

The news comes after weeks of tense negotiations between the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents about half of New York City’s public school bus drivers and attendants, and bus companies that contract with the city.

In an email, Carolyn Rinaldi, chief of staff at ATU, said that while there would be no bus service strike-related disruption next week as the new school year gets underway, the union remains at the bargaining table “to fight for what our members deserve — a fair contract.”

“For now, routes will be serviced and negotiations are ongoing,” she said, “but time is running out.”
