• Apple May Raise Pay of Shuttle Bus Drivers

    The Wall Street Journal reported over the weekend that drivers of commuter shuttles for a host of companies in the Silicon Valley region have given a green light to a three-year contract that comes with a big promise for higher pay by the Teamsters Union.

    According to the report in question, the contract will help to not only boost pay, but make said drivers eligible for overtime, paid holidays, and help subsidize health care and finally prioritize split shifts.

    We're told that the contract covers the drivers/employees at Compass Transportation, a firm that offers bus service for countless employees of major firms like Apple, eBay, Yahoo and others.

    Of course, this is not exactly a done deal yet. It now falls on Compass to take the contract to the six leading tech companies it serves for their approval. Compass VP Bryan O’Connell is quoted by the WSJ saying that he hopes the contract will ultimately be "supported by our clients and employees.”
