“The Las Cruces Transportation Federation Local #6341 bus driver union voted to authorize a strike after there has been no additional progress made in contract negotiations with Student Transportation Specialists New Mexico, the bus drivers' employer.

More than 98 percent of the drivers who gathered at Lynn Middle School on Tuesday evening voted to authorize a strike if a new contract doesn't come together by the end of the week.

"It's all about the safety of the kids," said LCTF President Dean Abrams. "The drivers, we all try to do everything we can. When the buses are overloaded, there's too many kids, this that and the other thing, it all comes back to the drivers and the kids aren't not safe.”

American Federation of Teachers New Mexico & Las Cruces Transportation Federation Local #6341 Hold Unity Gathering Regarding Transportation Safety Issues

Transportation Professionals and Community Members Advocate for Enhanced Safety for Students

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Ramiro Hernandez
September 24, 2021 702-985-1069

Las Cruces – AFT New Mexico President Whitney Holland and Las Cruces Transportation Federation Local #6341 President Dean Abrams released the following statements:

“New Mexico public educators have a responsibility to advocate for safe working conditions for themselves, but importantly for the students they serve. Transportation professionals are no exception to this obligation, and I am proud the members of LCTF #6431 are standing up for their students.

“There is no excuse for unsafe equipment to be used in our schools. It is unacceptable for any student or educator to be forced to ride or operate equipment in which they feel unsafe. STS New Mexico must immediately work with LCTF #6341 leadership to come to the table and make decisions which keep the focus on the safety of students and workers,” said Holland.

“We are on the front lines for students every day as the first person they see on the way to school. We know when they are well, when they are ill, or when they are having a hard day - we see it in their faces as they ride with us. We care for them deeply, and for many, we are their superheroes.

“As bus drivers and attendants, we carry a huge responsibility of ensuring our student riders make it safely to their destinations. And when we have to deal with an employer who is making it difficult for us to do our jobs, negotiate, or meet with us, it is a direct threat for students.

“Our students deserve more, but we can’t do it without STS New Mexico meeting us at the table and standing with us to prioritize our students. We appreciate and thank the members of the Las Cruces community who stood with us today and said, ‘STS New Mexico: it’s time to put our students first’,” said Abrams.

Cuba's school bus drivers were recognized nationally by TIME as pandemic school year heroes – I couldn't agree more!

Driving hundreds of miles each day, they delivered food, water, schoolwork, clothing, and supplies to hundreds of students in the area, a true lifeline in a time of need.

I am so grateful to the bus drivers, teachers, assistants, administrators and school personnel all across New Mexico who have continued to go above and beyond to reach students and support families during these difficult times.

Today we honor and remember the AFT members who were killed on 9/11. Twenty years later we still hold these members and their families in our hearts. #NeverForget

09/11/2021

On this day, we remember six members of the DCPS family we lost 20 years ago: students Asia Cottom, Bernard Brown, and Rodney Dickens, and teachers Hilda Taylor, James Debeuneure, and Sarah Clark.

They were chosen to participate in a trip to study ecology in California beside National Geographic Society researchers. On September 11, 2001, less than 35 minutes into the trip, their flight was hijacked. At 9:37 a.m., the plane crashed into the Pentagon. All passengers on board were killed, and 125 Pentagon employees lost their lives.

Asia was a new student at Backus Middle School. Her father worked at the school as a coach and a classroom aide. Teachers remembered Asia as kindhearted and eager to help her classmates.

Bernard was the type of student who kept teachers on their toes at Leckie Elementary School. Bernard’s teachers agreed that he was showing real progress, and that was one of the reasons why he was recommended to participate in the trip. He loved basketball and wanted to play professionally one day.

Rodney always made the honor roll at Ketcham Elementary School. His mother expected him to be a role model for his two younger brothers, as his two older sisters had been for him. His favorite activity was watching professional wrestling—no matter what he was doing, “…he made it home to see wrestling,” his aunt remembered.

Asia, Bernard, and Rodney were each 11 years old.

Hilda Taylor was a veteran teacher at Leckie Elementary School, teaching 6th grade. Originally from Sierra Leone, she immigrated to the United States to create a better life for her family. Ms. Taylor was a mother and a grandmother.

James Debeuneure returned to the classroom as a second career. He was a 5th grade teacher at Ketcham Elementary School. He was known for arriving early and leaving late. Mr. Debeuneure was a father of three.

Sarah Clark began teaching in DCPS in 1965 and worked as a 6th grade teacher at Backus Middle School. She was engaged to be married. Ms. Clark was a mother of two.

Asia, Bernard, Rodney, Hilda, James, and Sarah are forever in our hearts. Our deepest sympathies remain with their families.

Tucker was a secret agent of sorts for the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, which was the first Black-led union chartered with the American Federation of Labor. Under the guise of making social calls to the homes of Pullman Company workers, Tucker used these visits to organize, pass out union literature and even collect dues.

Caring, fighting, and showing up is what our union - and in fact, the whole labor movement - is about: fighting for a better life for all and demonstrating that together we have the power and solidarity to accomplish what is impossible to do alone.

Happy #LaborDay from AFT. ✊
