New contract approved for school bus drivers

School bus drivers finally have a new contract this morning. 



The contract with Baumann Bus was approved yesterday by 84 percent of the drivers.



The union says it includes hikes in pay and benefits of 4 percent to 5 percent for each of the next three years.



The contract also increases the number of paid days off and the amount the bus company must contribute to the medical plan.
