Who is ULU Local 100?

Local 100’s mission is to organize and represent unorganized service sector workers in the middle south states of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and allow our members to create a vehicle to allow them a clear voice and real power in their workplace and their communities.  After more than 25 years as an SEIU local, in October 2009 Local 100 became independent again.

Justice for School Bus Driver PDF Print E-mail

Mr. Clarence Crenshaw, a long term employee with a spotless work record drove a School Bus that carried students from Truett Elementary, a school with Students so out of control that teachers would ride along on the bus to help control the students. On October 14 no teacher was there to help. Mr. Crenshaw loaded the students and they went out of control while the bus was parked in front of the school. Mr. Crenshaw got them under control, reseated and quieted down except for two who he escorted off the bus and sent to the principal. The girl student’s parents accused him of grabbing her arm and after a perfunctory investigation by Dallas County he was fired. Mr. Crenshaw’s wife is dying of cancer and this also meant losing health insurance and possible financial devastation. Mr. Crenshaw called Local 100, the only union that fights for Drivers and monitors in Dallas County Schools. Local 100 went to bat and got Mr. Crenshaw’s job back.

A school Bus driver can be robbed and assaulted by Students on camera and nothing will be done but if he is accused of touching a student he is immediately fired, unless he is defending his life. Mr. Crenshaw’s spotless work record made the difference in swinging the decision in his favor.
