HICKSVILLE, N.Y. — A school bus strike affecting several Long Island school districts has ended after nearly two weeks.
TWU Local 252 President Debra Hagan tells Newsday that drivers have been sent back to work in four Nassau County school districts.
Hagan says a proposed new contract will be given to union members Friday morning for a vote. Details were not disclosed.
The two sides had disagreed about wage increases and payment for transporting students on field trips.
The strike disrupted transportation for more than 20,000 students in Baldwin, Freeport, Hicksville and Rockville Centre.
Officials for the bus company could not be immediately reached for comment.
