Cumberland County schools brace for bus driver walkout

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- ABC11 has learned of another planned protest by school bus drivers that could affect routes next week.

The Cumberland County School District said several bus drivers may be absent Tuesday.

The school system did not know Friday how many bus routes may be affected.

With the uncertainty, the district is encouraging parents to consider arranging before- and after-school transportation for their children.

This comes after dozens of bus drivers walked off the job in Wake County to protest pay and working conditions.
