Members of United Steelworkers Local 286 from First Student Transportation company attended a union sponsored safety training at the Union Hall.
Company representatives from Philadelphia as well as corporate executives attended the training that was lead by First Student Safety
The purpose of the safety training was to reinforce standard safety protocol and remind drivers about the importance of following all safety procedures.
The meeting consisted of a verbal presentation and a safety video that was very informative and reflective of the need for following the training that every employee / member received during their initial training upon hiring.

Working together with the companies that employ our members is good business and helps protect our members against injuries, mistakes, accidents, & fatalities. It also helps reduce write-ups and disciplinary actions.
