Local 100 Campaign for Bus Drivers in Dallas PDF Print E-mail

Local 100 members attended the Dallas County Schools Board Meeting April 16 to address the Board about drivers who are being fired because of late surcharge payments which causes their license to be suspended. Immediately after the Board meeting Aaron Hobbs met with one driver, David Walker, who had told his story to the board. His license had been suspended June 2014 while he was on a leave. He had been rehired in August but he didn’t get the DPS notice that his license was suspended until March 2015. He notified his supervisor and he has not driven since. Instead of giving him a letter of termination, which would let him apply for unemployment, he has been kept on the employment roles without pay. Hobbs agreed to look for a monitor’s position for him until he got the license fixed and then let him return to driving.

Unfortunately, there is no clear and easy solution to this. Dallas County keeps putting all the blame on the Drivers while it ignores the real problem, which is that the Contractor, Municipal Services, who handles the paperwork for the DPS does not notify the drivers that their license has been suspended in a timely or efficient way.

David returned to work the following Monday, April 20 as a monitor and will return to driving when he gets the license reinstated.

Local 100 wins pay raise and Back pay for Dallas County Schools Bus Driver PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 19 December 2014 03:44
Documented driving experience outside Dallas County Schools can be credited to the years of Dallas County experience, which puts the employee at a higher level on the pay scale.

Mr. Sysamouth Singvong has driven a school bus for Dallas County Schools and other school bus companies and school districts for almost 19 years. Before coming to work for Dallas County Schools.

Mr Singvong had asked to be given credit for his experience but nothing happened until he got Local 100 involved. 

Local 100 went to bat and  got enough experience credited to him to get a $6.00 per hour pay raise and $2400.00 back pay and he might win more.
