The solidarity established by the bargaining campaign continues to strengthen local unions as they face the challenges of the public health emergency. “We used all the tools we had to build a support and get a fair contract. Transit operators deserve a safe and healthy work environment, but also because we believe in the importance of a well-funded public transit system,” said Jerry Dias, president of Unifor National, who was instrumental in closing the deal at the end of the night and narrowly avoiding the complete shutdown of Metro Vancouver`s transit system. Today, transit traffic workers remain on the front lines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and keep customers in touch with basic services. The review and ratification of the agreement by Unifor 333 members and the BC Transit Board of Directors will take place in the coming weeks. VICTORIA – BC Transit and Unifor Local 333 are pleased to announce that a preliminary work agreement has been reached. The current employment contract between BC Transit and Unifor 333 expired in March 2019. Nearly 5,000 transit workers at Metro Vancouver, represented by Unifor, ended a 26-day work operation on November 27, 2019, when an interim agreement was reached on the eve of a three-day closure of the transit system. .
