    Default Slow but Steady: 6 Years Into Bus Driver Campaign, Teamsters Organize 32,000

    While most large labor union organizing stories of the last decade have been dark tales of hostile employers, indifferent government bureaucrats and powerless workers, one such effort stands out in hopeful contrast—the national school bus drivers campaign spearheaded by the Teamsters union.



    The campaign marked a major milestone last month when it notched an election victory in the northern California towns of Hayward and Livermore. That vote added only 159 workers employed by Durham School Services to the union rolls, but it also represented the 300th bus driver election victory for the Teamsters over the last six years. Cumulatively, the election wins have resulted in the addition of some 32,000 new union members at Teamster locals across the country.

    Although I am glad to see this What are they doing about the freight division.. It seesm the IBT is always patting themselves on the back but IMO they need a in the a$$ to get them started in freight.. Here is a scenario Conway has a large breakbulk here in the Hudson Valley and a few of their drivers went to Local 445 and asked about representation and this is what was told to them..They cannot organize Conway per the IBT till they get Fed-EX on board...Now fast forward they are not even approaching Fed-Ex so here these Conway guys are being left out in the pasture but the IBT will pat themselves on the back every time they get another bus garage to sign up... Way to go HOFFA
