NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Tens of thousands of children were preparing Sunday night for the threat of a New York City school bus drivers’ strike.
As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, the students and their parents have found themselves caught up in a nasty fight between the district and the drivers’ union. A strike would force them to find another way to school.
The union said Sunday night that drivers will show up to work on Monday. But beyond that is anyone’s guess.
The threat to strike stems from the city’s decision to invite bids to help control the more than $1 billion cost for school busing.
