Strike Thursday? Union to speak to press. City prepares contingencies.

Talks are continuing under a media blackout as the 12:01 a.m. Thursday deadline approaches. Representatives of the Amalgamated Transit Union will speak to the press at 10:30 a.m. and we will have a picture of the coming days then.

In case workers do hit the picket lines, the City of Toronto is preparing measures to try and keep traffic moving, as this article from CablePulse24 states. Bus-only lanes will become car-pool lanes and many streets will become massive no-parking zones from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The City is also asking businesses and employees to consider staggered work hours (coming into work or leaving earlier or later) to stretch out the rush hours and thin out the traffic.
