APS bus drivers plan march

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta Public School workers were expected to march at the superintendent's home Saturday. In a press release, they said they were frustrated over safety issues, working conditions, and payroll failures.

According to the release, bus drivers and monitors "have been consistently underpaid for the hours they actually worked or paid absolutely nothing due to payroll system glitches". The release, issued by AFSCME, or the American Federation of State, County, Municipal Employees union, said the workers will march around Erroll Davis' penthouse in Buckhead at 11 a.m.

The release went on to say, "APS administrators claimed proper and timely compensation is not a priority."

In a school board meeting a month ago, school officials said the pay issue was being negotiated.
