Mississauga Transit Contract Talks Break Off

MISSISSAUGA, ON — Contract talks between the City of Mississauga and local 1572 of the Amalgamated Transit Union broke off early Saturday morning, October 19. The Union has advised the City that they will be reviewing the status of negotiations on Sunday, October 20 at which time a decision will be made as to whether the union members will accept or reject the City’s offer of settlement.

The Union further advised, that if the City’s offer of settlement is rejected, strike action will be taken effective 12:01 a.m. on Monday, October 21st. As soon as the City is aware that the Union has decided to take strike action, further information will be provided to the public.

The union local represents 670 drivers and maintenance workers that provide transit services for the more than 24 million passengers who use the City’s public transit system annually. The contract expired on September 30, 2002.

“We had hoped to reach an agreement,” said Director of Human Resources Eric Draycott. “Unfortunately, following 13 days of negotiation, the City and the union were not able to agree on all the terms of the proposed new collective agreement.”

The terms the City offered to its transit employees include comprehensive wage and benefits improvements. “We are extremely disappointed the talks have broken off,” said Transit Director Bill Cunningham. “We are concerned about the impact it will have on our customers, employees and their families.”
