Negotiations Fall Short, JPS Bus Drivers Still on Strike

JACKSON, Miss. — Jackson Public School (JPS) bus drivers are still on strike. Driver representatives met with JPS leaders Tuesday morning, hoping to come up with a resolution addressing pay and working conditions, but instead Superintendent Dr. Cedrick Gray just told them to get back to work.

According to WLBT, JPS district leaders could be meeting with private bus companies to service the schools, but no official confirmation.

The bus driver protest started last week after drivers discovered they may not see a pay raise until next summer. Since, students have had to find other ways to school.
