Job Action at Coast Mountain Bus Company

We expect all transit services to operate as normal this weekend. 

CMBC and CUPE 4500 have both agreed to the recommendations brought forward by Special Mediator Vince Ready.

Statement from Coast Mountain Bus Company President and General Manager Michael McDaniel:

“Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) has received the recommendations by Special Mediator Vince Ready. We accept the recommendations put forward and thank Mr. Ready for his work.

As the Special Mediator noted, labour disruptions in the Lower Mainland’s public transportation system lead to significant public hardship and negative economic impacts. Without public transportation, commuters are left stranded, unable to get to work, school or medical appointments. For many, paying significant costs for alternative forms of transportation isn’t an option, and without public transit there is increased traffic and congestion for many.

As recommended by the Special Mediator, the next step will be to sign a Memorandum of Agreement before the ratification process.”
