The City of Winnipeg has come to an agreement with the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Local 1505, representing Winnipeg Transit drivers and maintenance workers.

In a news release, the city says both sides have reached a tentative agreement.

Transit workers had been refusing overtime this week after the two sides couldn’t come to an agreement, forcing many buses and routes to either be delayed or cancelled.

The offer of settlement must still be ratified by both the ATU membership and city council.

Winnipeg Transit carries over 130,000 riders each weekday and employs approximately 1,100 bus operators and about 250 maintenance staff.
