    Default First Student Bus drivers

    The international has a Master Agreement that was voted on overwhelmingly.

    LEADERS OF LOCAL UNIONS OVERWHELMINGLY ENDORSE TENTATIVE NATIONAL MASTER FIRST STUDENT AGREEMENT
    Teamster leaders from local unions that represent First Student workers voted overwhelmingly to endorse the tentative National Master First Student Agreement, paving the way for members to vote on the agreement in the near future.

    Ballots will be mailed to members on or about July 28 and are scheduled to be counted on or about August 18.

    The National Master First Student Agreement (NMFSA) Negotiating Committee reached a tentative agreement with the company that will cover all Teamster members employed by First Student through March of 2021. Negotiations were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result the committee reached a deal with the company to address as many issues as it could, given the circumstances. The committee will return to the bargaining table next year to negotiate a five-year contract that will address long-term benefits and other outstanding issues.

    The First Student Master Agreement has been ratified.

    TEAMSTERS RATIFY FIRST STUDENT NATIONAL MASTER AGREEMENT
    School bus drivers and monitors employed by First Student, Inc. voted overwhelmingly to ratify their newest national master agreement with the company. The contract covers over 20,000 Teamsters at the company through March of 2021.
    This contract includes a number of significant improvements, including protections against the use of audio or video equipment by management to target members for discipline or discharge, additional safety obligations on the part of the company and improved transfer rights in the event that a member moves to another location. Perhaps most notably, the committee reached an agreement with the company to create a new job classification for non-CDL drivers, which restricts what non-CDL work can be performed and gives preferences to full CDL operators. This provision will protect members’ jobs from being outsourced to ride-share companies and provide a pathway for First Student members to attain a CDL.

    New agreements for First Student drivers and office workers in Illinois.

    TEAMSTERS LOCAL 777 RATIFIES CONTRACTS AT FIRST STUDENT VILLA PARK
    With an overwhelming majority of members voting in favor of both agreements, Teamsters Local 777 has ratified two collective bargaining agreements at First Student of Villa Park, Ill. One contract covers drivers and monitors at the location and the other contract covers the administrative office staff.
    Both collective bargaining agreements include significant wage increases. The contract covering drivers and monitors included improvements to the workers’ retirement plans. The contract covering office staff, the first of it’s kind negotiated by Local 777, moved the members to a health care plan with massively reduced out-of-pocket costs.

    Another group of "First Student" bus drivers join Teamsters local 251 in Rhode Island.

    Location is Fifth Rhode Island First Student Yard to Affiliate with Union
    On Monday First Student school bus drivers voted 14-0 to join Teamsters Local 251 to becomes the fifth First Student yard in Rhode Island to be represented by the union. The Teamsters also represent school transportation workers at four Ocean State Transit locations, for an approximate total of 1000 members statewide.
    “The election results will be certified in a few days, then we will begin to negotiate with the company,” explained Taibi. “First Student workers who vote to join us fall under our national agreement with the employer. That gives us the ability to focus on economics and the issues workers have identified as important to them that are specific to this location.”

    News on First Student National Master Agreement.

    TEAMSTERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT AT FIRST STUDENT THROUGH 2026
    Teamster leaders from local unions that represent First Student workers voted unanimously to endorse the tentative National Master First Student Agreement, paving the way for members to vote on the agreement in the near future. A sole no vote was inadvertently cast, but was immediately rescinded after the meeting.
    Ballots will be mailed to members on or about June 7 and are scheduled to be counted on or about June 28. The new agreement includes additional safety provisions added in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, an additional stipend for company-required medical examinations and enhanced paycheck protections, and perhaps most notably, language that makes Teamsters at First Student eligible to participate in certain union health care and retirement plans.
