WINNIPEG TRANSIT DRIVERS BEGIN JOB ACTION AMID CONTRACT DISPUTE
Winnipeg Transit drivers won’t enforce fare payment from riders on Tuesday as part of legal job action.
The Amalgamated Transit Union 1505 says its members have been without a contract since January, as negotiations continue with the City of Winnipeg.
As part of the ongoing dispute, drivers won’t be informing the public of their obligation to pay a fare when they get on board a bus.
The job action comes a month after 98.16 percent of ATU members voted to reject the city’s latest contract offer.
