NEWARK, Del. (CBS) — Union bus drivers for the Appoquinimink School District are protesting as they go on strike over contract negotiations. Drivers for the First Student Bus Company showed up early Thursday morning to the company’s headquarters and may picket again tomorrow.

The bus company reportedly asked for time to get a mediator, but it is unclear if the union agreed to that request.

Ahead of the strike, both Delcastle and Hodgson Technical High School had remote learning for Thursday.
