Las Vegas (FOX5)-Clark County School District bus drivers believe Tuesday’s “call” protest day will be a “disaster.”
The driver started working at CCSD in early August. She didn’t want to reveal her name or identity.
The lack of drivers throughout the district is affecting drivers who have “yards” to pick up buses. She requested a garden 10 separates from her home, but was assigned to a garden 30 separates.
She said she would pick up students from two high schools and one elementary school in the morning on an average school day. There are eight stops at the elementary school. She usually said it would be four or five.
She received a large amount of email from work on Friday and was 30 minutes earlier than their regularly scheduled time to “help prepare and mitigate the impact of potentially high callout rates of the day.” He said he asked the driver and his aide to report.
CCSD is not responding to direct inquiries about Tuesday from FOX5.
The main issue she hears from her colleagues is the obligation to pay and the COVID-19 vaccine. She said she agreed with both.
“The salary is ridiculous. We are responsible for many lives because of the amount of stress we receive,” she said.
She’s new, so I’m not going to talk to her.
“I’m still pretty new, I don’t have time for illness, I don’t have time for vacation,” she said.
She thinks Tuesday may look like a big mess. “I think it’s going to be a disaster. I really do. I hope the district will see it because you wouldn’t have anything without us.”
