The Union VS The CMBC

Metro Vancouver transit users who take the bus or SeaBus should brace for some form of delay Friday as transit operators across the region begin the first phase of job action. Maintenance workers, like technicians and skilled  trades workers, are refusing overtime as of 8 a.m. PT. TransLink said there will be bus and SeaBus cancellations throughout the day without the staff working overtime, as regular service has grown to depend, in part, on workers’ extra hours. We invited both sides to tell RedFM listeners their side of the story. Harjinder Thind talks with Unifor 111 President Balbir Mann, Coast Mountain Bus Company’s President & General Manager Michael McDaniel, and Gavin McGarrigle Western Regional Director of Unifor.
