ROCKVILLE CENTRE -

A contract between drivers from TWU Local 252 and Baumann Bus Company was overwhelmingly ratified Tuesday.

The agreement gives drivers "guaranteed weeks" and higher pay for school trips. 

Drivers walked off the job on Nov. 6 and returned to work on Nov. 17. 

During that time, Baumann lost contracts with Hicksville and Rockville Centre school districts. 

The new contract is for three years.
