236 bus trips along 56 routes cancelled on Wednesday due to transit strike

Nov 20 2019, 9:33 am

As of Wednesday morning, 236 bus trips along 56 different routes have been cancelled due to the ongoing transit strike.

Notably, there are 17 trips cancelled on the 95 B-Line, 23 cancellations on the 145 SFU/Production Station, and 14 on the 125 Patterson Station/BCIT.

The cancellations come after an announcement made by Unifor last Friday, which declared that an overtime ban for bus operators would come into effect. The union that represents nearly 5,000 Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) employees said that service would be reduced by up to 10%.

Unifor has also stated that they plan to announce its next phase of job action on Wednesday morning. While the union has yet to share specific details of what the next phase includes, they noted that on Tuesday, dozens of union members received strike training.

Gavin McGarrigle, Western Regional Director of Unifor, says that the union was prompted to take action after “a failure by the employer to make new offers at the bargaining table.”
