Westport School Bus Drivers, Company Reach Agreement

WESTPORT, Conn. – The threat of a strike by Westport school bus drivers was put to rest Saturday after the drivers’ union and the bus company agreed to a contract settlement, a company spokesperson announced.

As part of the agreement, a four-year contract between the bus company, Dattco, and the drivers was unanimously approved, the news release said.

The drivers were set to go on strike Monday , Oct. 1, after rejecting a previous contract settlement. By Sunday night, however, the strike was averted after the union and the bus company agreed to a "cooling off" period.

The possibility of a strike this Monday was announced Thursday by Westport Superintedent Elliott Landon.
