Posted On: Mar 22, 2018

Sta Workers Join Teamsters Local 449

Drivers, Monitors Join STA Teamsters in Neighboring Lockport, N.Y.

(NEWFANE, N.Y.) – School bus drivers and monitors working for Student Transportation of America (STA) have voted overwhelmingly to join Teamsters Local 449. The 59 workers transport students for the Newfane Central School District.

“These workers were very motivated,” said Local 449 Secretary-Treasurer George Harrigan. “They are working together for a chance to improve their jobs, just like our members who organized at STA Lockport last year. We’re looking forward to negotiating a good contract and organizing more workers in the school bus industry throughout the region.”

Dick Eberhart, a driver at STA Newfane, was a member of the United Auto Workers for 35 years and knows what it means to have a strong union on your side.

“I was a proud UAW member for 35 years; I can't wait to become a proud Teamster,” Eberhart said. “A Teamster contract gives us representation with our employer, and we can use that representation to end favoritism in the workplace and provide ourselves with job security. All STA workers deserve the respect that comes with a Teamster contract.”

The victory in Newfane marks just the latest group of workers who have successful organized at STA, the third-largest school bus operator in the country. Eberhart and his co-workers will join the more than 50,000 employees throughout the school bus industry represented by the Teamsters across North America.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.  Visit www.teamster.org for more information. Follow us on Twitter @Teamsters and “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/teamsters.
