TORONTO, Ont. – A shutdown of Greyhound bus traffic in Ontario and Quebec has been averted for now.
The company says it has reached a tentative agreement with the union and all schedules should operate as normal.
The agreement is subject to ratification by union members.
About 490 employees, including drivers and maintenance workers, were expected to be locked out if a resolution to contract negotiations wasn’t reached by 12:01 a.m. Thursday.
Greyhound says it apologizes for any inconvenience the talks may have had on any of their passengers.
This week, 87 per cent of members who voted rejected Greyhound’s offer, citing pension issues and driving hours as the key sticking points.
