VIVA Workers Reject Contract Offer. York Bus Rapid Transit On Strike Tomorrow

The deal brokered between bus drivers and management on VIVA (York Region’s bus rapid transit service) failed to win majority support from the membership earlier tonight, and as a result, VIVA bus drivers will be on strike as of 4:00 a.m. on Thursday morning. The vote was 61% against the contract offer.

The Toronto Star is following this developing story:

The remaining two-thirds of York Region’s transit service would continue to operate, but it doesn’t have the capacity to serve all the passengers who would be without Viva, region officials said.

They urged commuters to try to arrange a lift through Carpool Zone or to call the YRT/Viva Customer Service Centre, at 1-866-668-3978.
