Urge him to sign A 8019 C the School bus bill
NYS School Bus bill A8019C/S5984C is on the desk of Governor Cuomo and he will either sign it or veto between now and Weds 11/23.
The bill makes Employee Protection Provisions law so that bus companies cannot drive down wages, benefits, and working conditions (our children's riding conditions!) in school transportation.
EPP has always been a point in PIST NYC's 10-point School Bus Bill of Rights campaign. We say this one bill won't solve every problem of busing but it will keep the workforce stable and empowered.
The bill also takes taxes off the purchase of new buses which presumably will mean the rusty buses from the last big hurricane can finally be replaced.
More than that, please stay active with PIST NYC in the fight for safer, shorter, stable, sensible bus routes for all students who need them. We expect to have a conference call by the first week of December; please reply firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number if interested.
