Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Officials with Durham School Services said Wednesday morning they had scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. at the company's offices in North Charleston.

According to the bus company, the company chairman, John Elliott, will provide an update on the ongoing negotiations.

Sources with knowledge of the negotiations said Dorchester District 2 drivers met with Durham on Tuesday. Charleston County drivers are meeting with the bus company Tuesday and Beaufort is slated to meet with the company on Thursday.

Durham School Services and Teamsters started a three-day negotiation on Tuesday to avert a bus driver strike.

Officials from Charleston and Dorchester counties said Tuesday afternoon that they had no further updated from Durham or the Teamsters. As a result, the districts were planning a normal school day.

Drivers from Dorchester, Charleston and Beaufort counties have all voted to authorize a strike.

Representatives from the union said they were still "working very hard at the bargaining table," adding that a statement would be released if there were any updates.
