EACS approves contract with bus drivers
Bus drivers in East Allen County Schools have a new contract in place for the new year.
During a midday meeting at New Haven Middle School, the school board today approved a two-year contract with the EACS Transportation Association beginning Jan. 1.
For 2019, the hourly rate for new hires will be 18.28 Jan. 1, 2020.
As in previous years, drivers will be awarded for their longevity with the district. The contact calls for a raise in their hourly rate on their first anniversary, and those with at least four years in East Allen will get additional compensation per day. For example, drivers with four to nine years’ experience will get an extra 1 from 2018, and $3.44 per day in 2020.
