Transit Windsor Alerts Riders to Strike Notice from Union

Transit Windsor is advising riders that they should prepare for alternate transportation arrangements ahead of Monday, February 5, 2024, due to a potential strike.

“We’ve been provided strike notice for the second time during our negotiations with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 616,” said Commissioner of Infrastructure Services (Acting) Mark Winterton. “We remain optimistic that talks planned for this Wednesday can keep the buses running, but we need to ensure riders know that the union has told us they will strike on February 5 if a deal isn’t reached.”

Transit Windsor provides public transit service in Windsor-Essex, including service to Amherstburg, LaSalle, and Leamington. In addition, Tunnel Bus and Special Events services are provided to Detroit, Michigan, and school extra service is provided to select schools in Windsor. All of these services will be suspended if members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 616 take strike action.

Updates will be issued as new information becomes available.
