WOODBURY - There is no new progress in the talks to avoid a major school bus strike in Suffolk.

Baumann and Sons Bus Company and the drivers' union have been trying to work out a deal since last week.

According to Newsday, the two groups talked all day yesterday and have decided to continue discussions tomorrow.

If both sides can't come to an agreement over pay and benefits, kids in multiple Suffolk districts could be left without bus service.
