Baumann & Sons Buses Inc. filed a Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification with the New York State Department of Labor on November 18. The notice indicates the company will lay off 134 employees at its Oceanside, New York facility.
Baumann provides transportation services to four Nassau County school districts. A two-week strike had such a negative impact of the schools that Rockville Centre School and Hicksville School Districts cancelled their contracts with the bus company.
Employee separations began on November 20. The affected employees are represented by the Transport Workers Union of America Local 252, according to the filing.
