Metro Vancouver’s transit strike is now in its fourth week — and it’s poised to get much, much worse.
Labour action began on November 1 with a uniform ban by transit operators and an overtime ban by maintenance workers, followed by bus operators refusing overtime. Now, should an agreement not be reached by Wednesday, a full system shutdown will take place, meaning that SeaBuses and the majority of Metro Vancouver’s buses will not operate.
