THE HORRORS OF BEING A TRANSIT BUS DRIVER

The Amalgamated Transit Union Canadian Council takes serious issue with the discipline of a Mississauga bus driver who was suspended for 5 days by Mississauga Transit for taking time to use the washroom while on duty.
"This is a national issue which affects the health and safety of both our country's bus drivers, and the public at large", says Stan Dera, Director of the ATU's Canadian Council.
There are numerous studies which confirm that forcing an individual to wait an unreasonable amount of time to use the washroom has serious effects both in the short term and in the long term. In the short term, a driver's concentration is diminished, which endangers both the driver and the passengers on the vehicle. In the long term, there are significant medical consequences to the individual, including bladder damage and kidney disease.
