Flint Schools Will Provide Bussing
Last week the Flint School District was considering outsourcing school bussing, with several people concerned they could lose their job. ABC-12 reports the district has decided not to use a private company which means no one will lose their job.
Originally when the district was thinking about the idea of outsourcing, union representatives for the bus drivers were worried because this could mean layoffs for 80 people who would then have to reapply for their job. If a private company came in they wouldn’t necessarily hire back all 80 employees. Union leaders are quite happy with the decision.
