School bus drivers in New York City back on the job

School bus drivers in New York City have returned to their jobs after ending a strike that started about month ago over job protection issues, The New York Times reports. The bus strike affected more than 100,000 students, tens of thousands of them children with special needs, who often travel long distances to get to their schools. The union representing drivers ended the strike with their concerns still on the table; they have decided to tyy their luck with whoever is elected later this year to replace Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who has refused to accept the union’s demands.
