Durham bus drivers for DD2 strike a deal

Posted: Updated:

After weeks of a looming bus strike, Dorchester District Two Officials confirm to News 2 that an agreement was reached between Durham Services and the bus driver union serving Dorchester District Two schools. 

Superintendent Joe Pye has been informed that bus drivers ratified a contract with Durham Services Tuesday night, February 26th.

Durham School Services told News two that they have heard "unofficially of a vote to accept the agreement in Dorchester [District 2] and while we cannot confirm any details, we are pleased with the progress that this suggests."

Superintendent Pye said that the district is thankful that an agreement has been reached ending the uncertainty and inconvenience suffered by school staff and the families of our students over the past weeks. 

"I want to thank employees and our families for all their efforts in creating contingency plans for transporting students to and from school in the event of a bus driver strike.   We appreciate the patience, understanding, and support of parents as we all focused on the safety and welfare of our children during a difficult time," Pye said.

According to the Post and Courier, Charleston County School District bus drivers are expected to vote on a potential deal Saturday.
