More Than 5,000 Coast Mountain Bus Workers Approve Strike Mandate

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 11 Oct, 2019
  • More Than 5,000 Coast Mountain Bus Workers Approve Strike Mandate

VANCOUVER - Unifor says more than 5,000 Metro Vancouver transit operators at the Coast Mountain Bus Co. have voted in favour of a strike mandate.

 

The union says the vote by Unifor Local 111 was 99 per cent in favour of striking after contract negotiations broke off Oct. 3.

 

The vote means a strike mandate is in effect for 90 days and transit users would receive 72-hour notice if job action occurs.

 

The union says it will continue to negotiate in good faith but is prepared to take job action if necessary.

 

Workers have been without a contract since March 31. Contract negotiations are set to resume Oct. 15.

 

Unifor officials say issues in talks with Coast Mountain include wages and working conditions.
