Contract negotiations between the Teamsters Union and Durham School Services, the company that employs bus drivers for three counties in South Carolina, including Beaufort, will continue next week.
Both sides left the negotiation table Friday without reaching a deal. Despite rumors that Durham walked out of negotiations earlier this week, the company remains optimistic that a deal can be reached.
Both side have said they want to get this issue solved as soon as possible.
According to a spokesperson for Beaufort County Schools, Superintendent Jackie Rosswurm told the union that both sides need to reach a deal fast.
Beaufort County Schools are in constant communication with Durham and they say the company has assured them that talks are getting better.
The union did vote to approve a strike if one is need and Durham has staffed replacement drivers incase a strike is called.
