Officials from Texas-based Student Transportation Specialists of New Mexico will meet with union representatives to discuss a new contract. The company was hired by Las Cruces Public Schools in July 2010 to bus its students to and from school.
Drivers say they're barely making it on the wages they're paid.
The director of operations for STS of New Mexico tells the Las Cruces Sun-News (http://bit.ly/xhbCv9 ) the company lost money the first year it was in the state and still loses money.
