no bus stop

I heard if from the bus driver tonight first, when I asked (after loading my bike to the front mounted racks) and the SPEC confirms it: No bus strike!
Transit agreement reached

There won’t be a bus strike.

Negotiators for the city of Hamilton and Local 107 of the Amalgamated Transit Union reached a tentative agreement shortly before 9 tonight.

City negotiators will recommend the deal to city council and the union executive will recommend it to its 600 members.

The union membership rejected a previous proposal from the city in October and on Wednesday, voted 97 per cent in favour of strike action if no deal was reached.

That led to today’s bargaining session.

A union ratification meeting is likely to be held by mid-week.
