Strike Notice: Potential bus service disruption
Vancouver Transit Strike Begins Today…
Nov. 1, 2019 – If you or your student depend on public transportation to get to and from school, please be advised that some bus service will be disrupted or cancelled starting at 8 a.m. today, Friday, Nov. 1, 2019, due to job action related to a transit strike.
Strike action follows the breakdown of contract negotiations between the public transit employees’ union (Unifor) and Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC), which provides bus transportation throughout Metro Vancouver. Employees had voted in favour of a 72-hour strike notice earlier this week.
Job action beginning today affecting bus service could include a rolling strike and work-to-rule options, which will include an overtime ban for maintenance workers.
The impact on bus service is expected to increase over time as bus maintenance support backs up and the number of buses available is reduced. Please follow the TransLink Alert to stay up to date on any service disruptions.
