NASSAU COUNTY -

More than 100 school bus drivers who went on strike in Nassau County are now out of a job.

Baumann Bus Company says in a filing with the state that they have laid off 134 drivers.

The layoffs come after the company lost contracts with the Hicksville and Rockville Centre school districts in the strike.

Striking employees returned to work last week after two weeks of picketing.

News 12's call to the union for comment was not immediately returned.
