As Gatineau's public transit workers prepare to vote on whether or not to invoke their strike mandate, the Canada Industrial Relations Board ruled Monday that transit is not an essential service.

The Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) had urged the board to rule transit services must be maintained during peak hours in the event of a strike.
