Nearly 100 Latino Express school bus drivers in Chicago voted to join Teamsters Local 777 in April 2011.
Latino Express Bus Drivers Still Fighting for Better Rights in Chicago
07.24.14 For more than three years, Teamsters Local 777 has continued to fight for approximately 100 school bus drivers in Chicago who want nothing more than fair working conditions. Their employer, Latino Express, has spared no expense in one legal battle after another to try to keep workers from improving their rights or gaining a voice in the workplace. On July 23, the National Labor Relations Board in Chicago heard yet another case involving the company’s mistreatment of workers after Local 777 filed charges over the unlawful termination of a driver. The new hearing came just two months after the board ordered Latino Express to bargain in good faith with the Teamsters on May 21. Since drivers first voted to join Local 777 in April 2011, Latino Express has appealed every decision issued by the NLRB.
