Hobbs – “We will avert a strike”
THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay transit drivers will be in a legal strike position on Monday. The talks between the city and the transit union are ongoing. The The Amalgamated Transit Union and the City of Thunder Bay are in mediated talks aimed at ending the possibility of labour action.
Thunder Bay Transit provides a vital link for students, workers, and many people as their means of transportation. A transit strike could have a major impact on Lakehead University and Confederation College students, as well as Lakehead Board of Education students.
Mayor Keith Hobbs states, “Negotiations are ongoing and I’m sure ATU will get a fair settlement and we will avert a strike”.
