Clay County schools and their drivers are tying to resolve a dispute.
The corporation says that they do not want drivers taking extended periods of unpaid leave. Right now there is no limit to the number of unpaid leave day’s bus drivers take. The corporation says that no one else is allowed to extended unpaid leave when personal and sick days have run out. The drivers can currently take those unpaid days for anything including a vacation.
Out of all of the employee groups, they are the only ones to be able to do that.
The employees say that they might need that time in a family emergency or for some other reason.
