BROOKLYN - Thousands of yellow school bus drivers and matrons who went on strike earlier this year may be back to work, but they're now facing major pay cuts.

Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 say they received letters notifying them that starting next Friday, they will receive a 7.5 percent drop in pay and benefits. They also won't receive accrual checks normally doled out this time of year.

On top of the pay cuts, drivers that work for Logan Transportation say they were also told in a letter that the company plans to lay off its entire workforce of 57 drivers and matrons by June 30, and that the layoffs are expected to be permanent.
