Last month, ATU’s took its first legal job action on May 14, 2019 not enforcing fares for riders. Shortly after, the union overwhelmingly rejected what the city said was its second and “final” offer, putting the union in a legal strike position. On June 3rd, the union implemented a mandatory overtime ban, barring members from taking voluntary overtime shifts. On June 26, ATU 1505 announced it would not enforce fares on June 27, which included transit to the Winnipeg Blue Bomber's home opener. This second fare strike also comes after a period of bargaining through the media, after the City leaked its latest offer to the CBC last month. ATU 1505 president Aleem Chaudhary provides an update. http://rankandfile.ca/winnipeg-transit-drivers-go-on-second-fare-strike-tomorrow/ http://rankandfile.ca/winnipeg-transit-drivers-may-take-job-action-this-weekend/ -- Millennium 4 All-- Sarah Broad's presentation to the City of Winnipeg Protection, Community Services, and Parks Committee https://youtu.be/9PR6QagTAiE -CUPE Local 1975- https://thestarphoenix.com/news/local-news/cupe-1975-university-of-saskatchewan-reach-tentative-deal-on-new-contract - Alberta's Bill 9- https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/alberta-s-largest-sector-union-takes-provincial-government-to-court-over-bill-9-1.5187749 --Support the show on Patreon!-- www.patreon.com/rfradioprairie -Follow the show on social media- twitter.com/RFRadioPrairie twitter.com/emily_leedham_ -More labour news- www.rankandfile.ca
