WESTBOROUGH – The school buses were rolling as usual on Monday, May 8.
Whether they will continue to roll will depend on whether a contract settlement can be reached between Teamsters Local 170 and NRT Bus.
The two sides negotiated all weekend, with a settlement reached for drivers covering Framingham Public Schools.
A contract has yet to be reached for Westborough, but the local decided to hold off on a strike.
It was a different story in Marlborough, where the local staged a strike on Monday, May 8.
There was some confusion over news reports late Sunday afternoon that suggested a deal had been reached for all three school districts.
“It’s been an uncertain 24 hours as multiple differing messages have been out in the media and circulating,” said Westborough Public Schools Superintendent Amber Bock.
Bock added that as of now, a strike has been averted.
“We will see how things go,” she said.
Should there be a strike, WPS has a contingency plan in place.
