Union wants arbitration to end HandyDart strike

MVT, the US company running HandyDart services,  refuses binding arbitration to end the strike that’s now in its third week. TransLink says it will not get involved.  Latest wage and pension offer by the American company was overwhelmingly rejected by union members. Meanwhile, TransLink is saving  hundreds of thousands of dollars during the strike, as it only pays MVT for the trips it makes.

TransLink’s door-to-door custom transit service has been shut down since picket lines went up Oct. 26, with roughly 12 per cent of medically essential trips for dialysis or cancer treatment continuing under an essential services designation.
