GO Transit braces for strike

Go Transit Is still making contingency plans in the event of a national rail strike at midnight tomorrow by CN conductors. The union reserved the right to withdraw those conductors, simply by giving Go and CN three days' notice.

While CN will still run its tracks system, by 2008 another company will have taken over running the bulk of GO's trains. GO has decided to put the deal out to tender, and CN has said it is not interested in bidding. Under the new contract, GO will be able to penalize the firm running the trains if they are late, something it cannot do under the current arrangement.
