Prepare For Possibly More Transit Cancellations and Disruptions

On November 13, the union is prepared to return to the bargaining table with the Coast Mountain Bus Company. If no deal is made in the next couple of days, the job action can escalate on Friday. The strike has been going on since November 1, after talks have broken down between the union and CMBC.

As of right now, workers still remain in their jobs, maintenance workers are banned from overtime, and drivers are not wearing their uniforms. Unifor lead negotiator, Gavin McGarrigle along with union representatives, says they are considering on additional days next week where drivers can join maintenance workers in an overtime ban.

This would lead to many more disruptions in bus schedules, which would affect students and workers even more. It is also creating a concern for some students who rely on transiting to and from school every day, especially with the weather changing.

“Not only are the buses taking longer or sometimes they’re canceled, the weather is also getting worse and Winter time’s gonna come. So we’re gonna have more of an issue having just the regular bus times, and top it off with the strike going on.” – Bertha Minondo, BCIT Welding student. 

This strike may raise concerns and problems for everyday transit riders, but at the end of the day, the bus drivers and workers are the ones who are greatly affected. The major issues for drivers are wage and working conditions. But the process of finding a resolution is not at all easy and will take time and careful decision-making for all parties involved.

“We have to think about why there’s the Translink strike. A lot of buses have to go through a lot of stuff, like it’s a hard job. They have to deal with all types of people. The whole Translink strike is so they can get better wages and they can have better benefits overall. It’s just basic human rights.” – Bertha Minondo, BCIT Welding student.
