WOW, ACTUAL SOLIDARITY AT A TRANSIT UNION

While Mcfarlane has stripped away our medical care and imposed unreasonable demands most operators are happily performing their jobs. But up in Vancouver, they actually stopped working overtime and that has had an effect on the system. Can't even get Trimet operators to stop working RDO's. They don't care. Union? What union?

Complaints from Greater Victoria bus riders were up Monday, largely because of cancelled trips during the first day of an overtime ban imposed by bus drivers.
Passengers felt the impact of the region’s transit strife as nearly 40 trips were cancelled on 10 routes.
General inquiry and complaint calls concerning the service average about 300 a day, but there were 500 on Monday. 
The bus drivers have stopped working overtime shifts because of a breakdown in contract negotiations between the union and B.C. Transit last week.
