First Student Possible Service Interruption
First Student Possible Service Interruption
November 2, 2016
 
Dear parents/guardians,
 
I am writing to provide you with an update to my letter last week regarding the status of busing by First Student Inc. As mentioned last week, First Student and Unifor 4268, the union representing their bus drivers, continue to negotiate for a collective agreement. We have been notified that Unifor 4268 has set a strike date of 12:01am, Thursday, November 3, 2016. Should a deal not be reached or negotiations not be extended, the First Student drivers may strike beginning with morning routes on Thursday, November 3.
 
If your child is on a bus route beginning with the number seven (7 or 07), this route is serviced by First Student; other route numbers are not affected. In the event of a local strike, there will be no school bus transportation to students serviced by First Student. First Student will not replace the bus drivers on these routes, and other operators are not in a position to be able to provide additional routes or drivers to service these routes.
 
We appreciate that this news is frustrating for those potentially affected. Please know that we will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide you with as much information as we have available. Should a strike be called, parents will be notified by letter, through the Board’s website, the student transportation services website, and through the Board Twitter feeds @YRDSB. We also encourage you to follow local news outlets for updates.
