On Dec 4, 2008 over a hundred SF school bus drivers who are members of UTU 1741 picketed and protest the illegal firings and union busting tactics by Scottish owned First Student. This company which recently purchased Laidlaw is in a war to bust the unions at these operations by firing bus drivers in violation of the contract and for incidents that have nothing to do with their driving record.

First Student, the largest school bus company in the world based in Aberdeen, Scotland has taken over Laidlaw Bus company and is in an massive union busting drive against unionized bus drivers. It is ignoring union contracts and illegally firing drivers and then ignoring arbitration decisions. San Francisco school bus drivers who are members of UTU 1741 marched and protested on December 4, 2008 at the company yard against these illegal tactics. They are calling for support from all First Student Workers and the rest of the labor movement.
