Boston Bus Drivers on Strike

BOSTON (AP) -- A federal judge has turned down a request to force striking Boston school bus drivers back to work.
   The company that operates the buses sought a temporary restraining order against the drivers' union.
   But an attorney for the United Steelworkers local argued an injunction against the union wasn't appropriate. He said "rogue" employees initiated Tuesday's surprise walkout and the union has asked them to return to work. 
   An attorney for Veolia Transportation Inc. said it strains credibility to believe that the union isn't behind the near universal work stoppage. But a federal judge sided with the union, saying an injunction wasn't appropriate now.
   School officials say the walkout by most of the city's 700 bus drivers stranded about 33,000 students. Striking drivers say Veolia isn't honoring their contract terms.
