THE BRONX - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that school bus companies and union leaders are planning to meet on Monday in an effort resolve the strike.

Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 walked off the job last Wednesday, demanding a job security provision for veteran drivers in new contracts. The city argues that it would be illegal.

A mediator will conduct the meeting at Gracie Mansion in Manhattan.
