OC Transpo will shed between 505 and 608 positions when the Confederation Line LRT opens in 2018, prompting management to ask for ideas to prevent layoffs.

Clint Crabtree, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279, said he’s “very disappointed with the number of the staff downgrade,” which Transpo unions learned from management Monday.
