Albany - - More than a month after a dozen Dougherty County School bus drivers walked off the job and stranded hundreds of students at school, they say there are still problems on their job. 

Those drivers took their complaints to school board members Tuesday. Not only is pay an issue, they also say many busses are overcrowded and some leak when it rains.

They also told board members that supervisors don't respect them or listen to their concerns.  

"In fact when they call into them, we have some supervisors that are hanging up on bus drivers, we have some that talk down to them and it's a very demeaning and demoralizing issue," says union representative Kliff Grimes.

The board decided to let members of the transportation committee take a closer look at the issues and work with the drivers to resolve them.
