CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Durham School Services will resume talks with the union representing many of its drivers in Charleston and Dorchester counties on Tuesday, according to a spokesperson with the company.

Durham spokesperson Carina Noble issued the following statement on Sunday:

As a partner to the districts and communities we serve, Durham School Services shares in the concern for the uncertainty of student transportation services that lies in the hands of the union. We remain committed to reaching an agreement with the Teamsters as we continue to balance the interests of our employees, our customers and our company at the negotiating table. We will resume meetings with the union on Tuesday, January 29, and will do all we can to minimize service disruption to students and ensure our employees are covered by a new and fair agreement.

Meanwhile, officials with the Charleston County School District and Dorchester District 2 say they have not been notified that there will be a bus strike and will follow a normal schedule on Monday.

According to Jason Sakran, a spokesman for CCSD, the district is aware that the situation can change at any time and are asking parents to continue planning alternative ways to get their child or children to and from school in the event of a strike.

School officials say in the event of a strike parents should arrive early to school and carpool with family, friends and neighbors.

Sakran says school staff members are being asked to arrive 45 minutes early Monday morning.

The district sent out a parentlink call to all parents Sunday at 1p.m.

Dorchester District 2 officials also said they have not been notified that there will be a bus driver strike and plan to follow a normal schedule for students and staff on Monday.
