Teamsters Local 777 and Teamsters Local 179 Continue to Drive Up Standards Across the Private School Bus Industry

(NAPERVILLE, Ill.) – Teamsters Locals 777 and 179 drivers and monitors who work for First Student ratified contracts that contain significant gains in representation, pay and benefits. More than 600 drivers and monitors are covered by the two agreements, and they provide services for Naperville School Districts 131 and 204.

“These workers fought hard, stuck together and won,” said Local 777 President Jim Glimco. “School bus drivers from the Batavia First Student yard are now among some of the highest paid in all of the cities and towns throughout Chicago’s western suburbs.”

Local 179 President Tom Flynn echoed Glimco’s sentiments concerning the contract that was negotiated by Local 179.

“I don’t try to sell contracts,” Flynn said. “Our committee spoke to their coworkers and fought hard for what they wanted at the bargaining table. That’s why this contract was ratified by more than 80 percent of our members.”

Both contracts include free vision coverage, an increased 401K match and hourly pay increases that go as high as $23.50 for drivers and $16.25 for monitors, depending on years of service. The contracts also include pay raises for extra routes, plus safety bonuses and other bonus incentives.
