Hi gang. Metro Vancouver's bus drivers, mechanics and SeaBus employees are searching for a new contract.

Union is seeking wage parity with Toronto drivers.

Drivers stopped wearing uniforms Nov 1. Mechanics and SeaBus staff have refused overtime since Nov 1.

Drivers refusing overtime Nov 18; 20 & 22. Like 300+ trips cancelled.

Full work stoppage planned for next Wed, Thur and Fri.


West Vancouver blue buses will still operate.

SkyTrain workers are still negotiating at this time

I haven't really noticed any changes to transit service, but I don't use it anyway.

Should I pick up random strangers on my way to work during this shutdown of transit buses? Every morning I drive pass the long lineup of people waiting for the 99 B-Line. So much people waiting for the bus. Imagine no bus.
