'Very good progress' in negotiations, says Durham

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Durham School Services said Friday they were making "very good progress" in negotiations with the bus drivers union.

Negotiations are slated to resume Monday to resolve disagreements over wages and health benefits for drivers.

Durham officials said more time is needed to "fine tune" details and drivers are not expected to strike while negotiations continue.

The two sides have been hashing out details of a new contract since July and tensions rose between the two as three school districts' bus drivers voted to authorize a strike.

Currently, Dorchester District 2, Charleston County and Beaufort County school districts use union bus drivers employed by Durham.
