This has been an 18-month process with 22 days of negotiations, including 7 with a provincially-appointed conciliator. Unfortunately, we have been met with unexplained delays from ATU – which signals one of two things: they are unwilling or unable to bargain.
It is my sincere hope that our transit employees will take a second look at the City’s offer this weekend – it represents a fair and competitive offer for our employees and is respectful of those who pay for the service. We hope to have our community’s transit service up and running again as soon as possible.
