Has this happened in the past?
What about the trains that don't leave from there?
If you read the articles about this strike, you will see that they highlight that the GO union's chief concerns are thus: "Cormier said the union's key issues include job security and job safety relating to hiring contract workers from outside companies."or that the government should always give unions what they want and raise taxes accordingly.
Not that I'd agree with you even if the union's issues were with money. No one is obligated to work poverty wages. The cost of living is going up, if you don't increase people's wages accordingly they will go somewhere and then you'll be left without anyone to run the transit system at all.
You are assuming that the Government has been negotiating in good faith.A negotiation has two parties and both sides determine decide what is in the contract and the contract's length. You make it sound like the government is wholly in control which is only true if you accept back-to-work legislation should be used regularly, or that the government should always give unions what they want and raise taxes accordingly. This is not a lockout... it's a strike.
It's reading week at U of T. I don't know how universal this is though.I’m really disappointed by how little noise there is about the GO bus strike.
Students have led the ridership recovery, and they’re the most affected by the GO bus strike as they’re the least likely to have cars, and much of the GO bus network is centred around universities and colleges.
