As hundreds of teachers, parents, and educators descend on the First Student picket lines, First Student has finally reached out to the Teamsters and a meeting will be taking place tomorrow, February 8, 2018. We are hopeful that this meeting will bring us closer to a resolution to this strike.
Meanwhile, the striking bus drivers are grateful for the support from the Seattle Education Association, who came out in force to bolster spirits on the picket lines at each First Student bus lot. If this meeting leads to any announcements, we will be sure to inform the public who have been so helpful and supportive up to this point.
