GO union won't set strike deadline

Well it's Friday folks and those of us who've been on edge over this looming possible strike still don't have an answer for when D-Day is to drop.

According to the union representing more than 1,500 GO Transit workers, it will not announce a strike deadline Friday.

A representative for the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1587 told CityNews they don't expect to set a strike deadline because there is still an outstanding issue before the Ontario Labour Board. The union cannot set a strike deadline until the board makes its decision.

The decision was expected to be made by Friday, No timeline had been given for the OLB decision. More at CityNews' website

They'll most likely just spring it on people with less than 24 hours notice . . . pricks.

I am off next week, so if it is sprung on people, I am scot free!

But, I want to know so that I can buy an Oct. pass early if need be.

Squiggles - you need to scrap the pass and become a PRESTO girl!!! You might get a freebie here and there and you can blame it on the PRESTO machine!!!

Squiggles said...

I won't scrap the pass because I use it on weekends with friends. Until the powers that be say I can bring someone for free on the weekends with the PRESTO, I will make the switch.

Or once I am made to kicking and screaming, whichever comes first.

Squiggles said...

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! and stat holidays!

It's the reason why I get the pass and will keep getting one.

It is also something that is not really advertised or talked about.
