ATU LOCAL 1587 Rejects Contract Offer

GO Transit bus operators, support staff and ticket agents members of Local 1587 of the Amalgamated Transit Union employed by GO Transit rejected an Offer of Settlement presented by the employer. The membership rejected the offer of settlement by a vote of 96%.

A provincial conciliation officer has arranged a meeting with the Union and Employer for December 5th in an attempt to conclude a collective agreement.

The parties will be in a legal strike/lockout position as of 12:01 am December 10, 2007.

This dose not mean there will be a strike. At the present time it is another step in negations.
