For Teamster members employed by Illinois Central School Bus, in addition to the protections and benefits that are negotiated in your local contract, you are also covered by the Illinois Central Master Agreement. A copy of the agreement can be found here. This is important because it helps to ensure basic standards and allows us to negotiate up from there in local bargaining.
