Possible Winnipeg Transit Delays as Union Refuses Overtime

Possible Winnipeg Transit Delays as Union Refuses Overtime

Winnipeg Transit

The union representing Winnipeg Transit drivers and maintenance workers has rejected the city’s offer of settlement and will begin refusing overtime on Monday.

Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Local 1505 rejected the offer put forward by the city and the possibility of service delays could arise.

In a release, the city says disruptions may include late and/or cancelled bus service on any number of routes throughout the day.

Negotiations between both sides will resume on Monday.

Handi-Transit customers are not affected as service is provided by private contractors.

Transit riders should check WinnipegTransit.com or call 311 for updates on the latest route and schedule information.
