Bus riders in the Outaouais are being urged to make alternative travel arrangements for Thursday as the STO service braces for rotating strikes by drivers and maintenance employees. Word of the planned labour action emerged Wednesday after an apparently failed mediation session.
The STO told the Citizen the Gatineau transit commission itself has not been notified of how the strike will roll out and that is had only learned of the union’s plan through media reports. It encouraged commuters to check the STO.ca website for updates on the labour action.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/outaouais-buses-still-rolling-as-mediation-session-set-for-wednesday
