FIRST STUDENT MARLBOROUGH DRIVERS JOIN TEAMSTERS LOCAL 170
Congratulations to the 13 First Student school bus drivers who voted to join Teamsters Local 170 on Monday.
“All of the drivers at the Assabet location heard about the great contracts that Local 170 has been getting at other First Student locations and when we were approached by Organizer Shawn Stevens and heard about the contract that Business Agent Jim Marks just ratified at a nearby First Student location, we asked, where do we sign?” said John Flinkflet, a First Student bus driver
Based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, the group services the Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School. Organizer Shawn Stevens and Business Agent Jim Marks successfully organized this bus yard under the direction and support of Local 170 Secretary-Treasurer Shannon George.
“This was a team effort by all involved,” said George said. “We welcome our brothers and sisters at this location into the Teamsters’ family and we look forward to negotiating a strong contract for our newest members.”
