City to meet with transit workers tomorrow

Representatives from the Amalgamated Transit Workers Union 966 and the city will sit down Monday for the first time since the union's August 29th strike vote.

The union, which represents the city's transit workers, has voted 96% in favour of strike action. The earliest the union can legally strike or take other job action is September 17th— a deadline that is fast approaching.

Union president Charlie Brown says he hopes the two sides can have a productive meeting.
