Senator Royce West stiffs Local 100. Drivers and Monitors call for Walk out PDF Print E-mail

Twenty four Local 100 Dallas County School Bus drivers and Monitors ; some terminated but most still employed, met Saturday, 10/29/16, in the hopes of appealing their terminations and to ask for State Senator Royce West’s help to stop Dallas County’s continuing unfair terminations and suspensions.

Their hope quickly turned into anger and frustration when West called us to say he had another meeting and couldn’t come to ours, despite our having confirmed his attendance two days earlier. There were calls to Walk Out and Sick Out and the Drivers and Monitors immediately began strategizing the best time to do it. The State student testing day was picked as the day when DCS and the 13 school districts it provides student transportation for would be the most vulnerable to a Sick Out or walk Out.

                  In the end, cooler heads prevailed and the plan became to write a letter listing our issues which are:

1. Terminations and Suspensions because of red light camera tickets that go back three years and which we were never informed of until DCS needed a scapegoat to cover up their failure,

2. poorly trained Drivers,

3. Overloaded buses,

4. Unsafe buses,

5. DCS doesn’t follow its own policy.

And our demands which are:

1. Reinstate drivers who made the alleged violations,

2. Suspend the supervisors whose mis-management caused the problems.

3. Lift Driver suspensions or show proof.

4. Reimburse our lost wages,

5. Give us the right to face our accusers and send this letter to the Board members at DCS and all the school districts it serves.

6. And set up  informational picket

Dallas Local 100 Fights for Justice for School Bus Drivers PDF Print E-mail




On October 22nd, Dallas Local 100 members took the message to the people. Union members (Doris Humphrey, Cassandra Fletcher,  Robert Stahn of AISD and Vernon Johnson) were interviewed on KNON 89.3 FM about the unfair terminations and suspensions of the drivers by Dallas County Schools. 483 camera violations were posted against bus driven by DCS employees between 1/1/2014 and August of 2016.  These tickets were sent to DCS, the owners of the vehicles, and without the drivers knowledge and paid by DCS. When NBC 5 investigated DCS they found multiple checks issued to cover the fines, a total exceeding $80,000.  The drivers were not told at the time and any violations that occurred during that period were allowed to accumulate.  After the NBC 5 expose DCS demoted the 2 supervisory personnel in charge of informing the drivers and recouping the fines from the drivers, however the drivers involved were suspended (5 to 9 days without pay) or terminated.  Local 100 has been helping the involved drivers by assisting them with their grievances and representing them at their appeals.  Local 100 has also begun organizing the drivers in the Arlington ISD where a chronic shortage of drivers (40 short presently) has resulted in mechanics driving  creating a greater backlog of busses needing servicing and repairs. The lines were busy and hosts Bonnie Mathias and Gene Lantz of the Workers Beat were happy to spread the word about workers in DFW. Local 100 will keep the pressure on next week with the monthly membership meeting on October 29th with State Senator Royce West coming and listening to the issues of the workers who were unfairly terminated and suspended as well as ongoing management problems.  Senator West plays a key role as over 50% of the monies that school districts receives come from the state.People pictured in photo are:  Vernon Johnson fired driver, Gene Lantz- co-host of Workers Beat, Bonnie Mathias-co-host of Workers Beat, Cassandra Fletcher current driver with DCS, Doris Humphrey fired driver, Kenneth Stretcher organizer Dallas office, Robert Strahn-driver Arlington ISD.
