Some good news for Metro Vancouver transit users worried about a possible strike.
It looks like one has been averted.
The union representing 4,700 bus drivers, mechanics, maintenance and SeaBus workers has announced a tentative deal has been reached with Coast Mountain Bus Company.
Gavin McGarrigle with Unifor Locals 111 and 22000 says the tentative three-year agreement includes no concessions.
“We believe there are gains in many areas of the agreement. We had a lot of issues to work through, and we managed to work through them with the support of our membership. We will put before our members now, and hopefully gain their acceptance.”
Members will vote on the deal next Thursday.
In a statement, Coast Mountain says it’s pleased a deal was reached without a disruption in service to customers.
