Things weren’t always this way

REGARDING your lead story concerning the driver of the school bus waiting in the Sudbury bus park for five hours a day (Free Press, December 22), for several years this contract had been covered by Hedingham Omnibuses whose driver returned to the Sudbury depot where he worked all day before doing the afternoon school run.

However, this contract amongst others was lost last July and it is now done by Suffolk County Council coaches with loss of employment to local drivers.

I was one of the drivers who lost his job as a result of this loss of contracts. A local firm has lost work and employees have lost their jobs.
