Dayton Public Schools bus drivers voted today to approve a three-year contract, keeping buses running their normal routes as scheduled Tuesday without interruption. The Dayton Board of Education ratified the contract at a special meeting, following the vote.

 

“We commend our drivers for their acceptance of this multiple year contract that will allow us to focus on the business of educating our children; their actions today will provide continued service to our children to help ensure they are in school and learning,” Dayton Board of Education President Robert Walker said. 

 

The Ohio Association of Public School Employees Local #627 and the Dayton Board of Education have been negotiating since the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. Earlier this month, OAPSE #627 formally notified the district of its intent to strike on April 21 if a contract agreement was not reached.
