Transit strike in London, Ontario

London’s first transit strike in nearly 30 years

On the heels of the break down in contract negotiations between the London Transit Commission (LTC)  and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 741, the LTC held a press conference Sunday afternoon (Nov. 15), at City Hall where London’s Mayor Anne Marie DeCicco-Best expressed her frustrations.

De-Cicco-Best said thousands of Londoners will be impacted by this strike, and reiterated the LTC’s position that the offer placed on the table Sunday was fair and did allow for a combined increase of 9 per cent in wages and benefits.

As of midnight Sunday, unionized transit workers will officially be off the job until such a time as the two sides are willing to head into arbitration to reach a contract agreement.
