Source: Durham bus drivers for CCSD will vote on contract Saturday

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Durham School Services bus drivers who drive for the Charleston County School District will vote on a new contract with the bus company on Saturday, a source close to the negotiations said.

District officials said Wednesday evening that they had not heard from either side that a deal was forthcoming.

The union and bus company have been hashing out a deal since July, but talks stalled and votes for strike were passed unanimously in three Lowcountry school districts earlier this year.

Since then, the two sides have remained largely quiet about the specifics of the negotiations, but provided routine updates saying that talks were progressing.

Officials at Dorchester District 2 said they had heard rumors of a vote already being held by union drivers that serve the district, but had not received confirmation from the union or Durham.

Officials later sent out another statement, saying a deal had been reached between the two sides. Read more here.

Durham spokeswoman said before the announcement that officials had also heard rumors of a deal, but had no official word from negotiators. They have not released a statement since news of the deal was released by the district.
