Philadelphia school bus drivers, maintenance workers vote to strike ahead of new school year

Service Employees International Union 32BJ, which represents about 2,000 of the School District of Philadelphia’s maintenance workers and bus drivers, voted to strike on Saturday nine days ahead of the new school year. Both organizations hope an agreement will be reached next week. The city’s public schools faced a similar situation last year with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers. Their contract was ratified just hours before the deadline.
