Transit Windsor Buses Running Tentative Agreement Reached with Union

Transit Windsor buses will be running on the regular Monday schedule thanks to a tentative agreement with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 616.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have this deal done ahead of any disruption to service for our community”, said Commissioner of Infrastructure Services (Acting) Mark Winterton. “It’s been a marathon of negotiating to get here but we have a tentative agreement that we can present to City Council and that Local 616 can take to their members”.

No details of the agreement will be released ahead of council approval and membership ratification.

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 services will be operating as normal thanks to the tentative deal.
