On the heels of a weekend school bus driver protest, Boston Public Schools asked parents to prepare alternate transportation for Monday morning out of an abundance of caution another school bus strike could occur.
However, there has been no indication from the drivers’ union another strike is planned.
About 100 bus drivers protested outside the school bus yard on Freeport Street in Dorchester Saturday morning, BPS said in a statement.
The union was unable to be reached Sunday afternoon. Drivers stopped working for one day Oct. 8, an unannounced strike that left about 30,000 Boston Public Schools students without transportation. Union representatives have raised issues of benefits, payment, and fair treatment.
Starting at 6 a.m. Monday, parents can check the department’s online school bus tracker at schoolbus.bostonpublicschools.org or call 617-635-9520 or 617-635-4500.
