The TLDSB Transportation Department has been informed that First Student Canada – Bowmanville Branch have reached a tentative agreement with Unifor, the union representing the company’s Bowmanville school bus drivers, following three days of strike action.
Busing for students impacted by this strike will resume as usual on Monday, March 26. The strike impacted students who are regularly bussed to Grandview Public School, Rolling Hills Public School, and IE Weldon Secondary School on First Student bus routes K505, K506, K507, K508, K510, K511, K512, K513, K514, and K515.
We would like to thank parents, guardians, students, and school staff for their patience and creative solutions these past three days.
We are thankful both sides have been able to reach a tentative agreement. We appreciate the excellent job bus drivers do to transport our students safely to and from school each day.
