Event

The CUPE union, which represents approximately 900 Metro Vancouver SkyTrain workers, issued a 72-hour strike notice on Friday, December 6. According to a statement released by the union, discussions with TransLink’s BC Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC) over the past 40 days have failed to make significant progress on key issues. Bargaining between the union and BCRTC is ongoing and an update is expected to be released on Saturday, December 7. CUPE leaders did not immediately announce specific details on the strike if negotiations do not result in an agreement.

Disruptions to Vancouver’s metro rail system starting on Monday, December 9, are expected if the strike is held.
