School Bus Drivers To Address School Board About Safety And Service Concerns PR Newswire Apr. 24 Durham Drivers Speak Out As Santa Rosa County School Board Prepares To Award Student Transportation Contract (Milton, Fla.) – The following is being released by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters: (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100127/IBTLOGO) On Thursday, Apr. 25, at 6:30 p.m., school bus drivers from Milton, Pace and Navarre will address the Santa Rosa County School Board about serious concerns over safety, service and respect at Durham School Services. The Board is expected to act on a recommendation by its committee to award a new five-year school bus transportation contract to Durham at this meeting. Durham currently holds the district contract for school bus transportation. Drivers and monitors believe school bus safety and service should be a concern for the entire community and that Durham has not fulfilled its promises to the school district and employees in its current contract. "Durham wants to pass this off as a union issue, but it's not. We love our kids and our efforts to be heard are all about providing safe, quality transportation to them. It would be immoral not to come forward when we have such deep concerns for our children," said Kim McLaughlin, a Durham driver. Durham workers brought these concerns to public attention at an Apr. 18 forum in Bagdad, Fla., where they were joined by international guests from Europe and the U.S., including prominent trade unionists, civil rights, political and faith leaders. Durham is a subsidiary of National Express Group PLC, a United Kingdom-based multinational transportation company.
