The Teamsters Local 633 union representing New Hampshire school bus drivers and other workers employed by First Student confirmed they are authorizing a strike, but still hope to reach a deal. They will hold off until at least Tuesday.

The union, which represents 850 First Student employees, agreed to hold off on the strike until both sides met in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

No agreement was reached, but both sides agreed to continue talk about First Student's latest contract offer. This will continue at least through Tuesday, Salem School District Superintendent Michael Delahanty said.

The union represents 850 First Student employees.

If the strike does happen, it will directly affect schools across the state. Some of those schools are in Canterbury, Alton, Gilford, Laconia, and Belmont.
