OC Transpo will be the only municipal workforce directly affected by the implementation of the Confederation Line LRT, the city says.

“There are no anticipated staff reductions or increases in non-OC Transpo departments due to the implementation of LRT in 2018 at this time,” according to Marianne Phillips, the city’s acting director of human resources.

Transpo’s three unions learned this week there will be a major reduction in positions when the LRT system launches in two years.
