NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The strike by city school bus drivers and matrons continues with no end in sight.
The walkout began last Wednesday, triggered by the city’s plan to put bus contracts out to bid to lower costs.
The union wants a job security clause in those contracts, which the city says it can’t legally do.
Mayor Bloomberg was asked Tuesday afternoon whether he was considering canceling city contracts with school bus companies whose drivers and matrons have gone on strike.
“I didn’t talk to our lawyers to see whether we could do that or not and that’s not something at the moment that I’m contemplating,” said Bloomberg.
