The New York City school bus driver strike could come to an end as early as next Tuesday.
The National Labor Relations Board is expected to rule on a formal complaint from the bus companies claiming the strike is illegal.
The bus companies are being fined for missed routes and say they're being punished for a dispute between the city and school bus driver's union.
Drivers went on strike last Wednesday to protest the city's plan to re-bid bus contracts -- a move that they say jeopardizes their job security.
More than 150,000 students depend on the buses to get to school.
