Blacks says the union will provide the province and the federal government to provide emergency assistance for public transit transit communications BC 250-880-1303 Media@bctransit.com You might understand how to relieve the load for operators due to the sharp increase in the number of transit drivers. This would probably not require a system-wide stop. TransLink and the province are also developing a plan to address the long-term viability of the transit authority to enable it to continue to provide key services and projects. A full-time transit carrier with at least two years of experience earns nearly $63,589.50 per year for a 37.5-hour week without overtime. Most people think of Metro Vancouver`s transit system as a public service. “What is even more disheartening is that our union was only two days early. The legal standard for advice in the event of staff adjustment is 60 days. Our collective agreements require a four-week delay. We will hold management to account if the procedure is contrary to these standards. Bus company President and CEO Mike McDaniel said yesterday that management has proposed a larger package than most public sector B.C agreements. Among the savings measures announced on Monday is a new suspension of bus transit traffic, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express, which begins this week. TransLink had previously reduced transit traffic as a result of the pandemic, including the capacity of bus seats to promote physical dissociation and only boarding behind the front door. In addition, bus fares have been suspended to protect bus companies and has increased cleaning measures for buses, handyDART, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express.
The transit authority will also reduce executive salaries and board salaries by 10 per cent, according to government website B.C this mandate applies “to all public sector employers with unionized workers whose collective agreements expire on December 31, 2018.” (added to the article) Customers are also encouraged to travel only in transit, if necessary, so there is room available for essential service employees. In the late 1990s, when TransLink was founded, the Board of Directors did not need to create 100% separate subsidiaries with its own CEOs. But it did, and now transit users can face the consequences of this decision. “Transit will return to its leading role in providing safe, reliable and affordable services to our communities, and we must do everything in our power to ensure that they are implemented as quickly and efficiently.” The agreement focuses on improving business services and ensuring fair and affordable compensation. MoveUP Local 378 represents approximately 180 directors working at BC Transit. VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – As of this week, TransLink will temporarily lay off nearly 1,500 people and suspend transit traffic to cope with the loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BC Transit and the employees represented by MoveUP Local 378 have ratified a new agreement as part of the government`s negotiating mandate for sustainable services from the B.C government. “These layoffs are counterproductive to our province`s otherwise significant efforts to combat the COVID 19 crisis.” In addition, to make ends meet, @TransLink will use capital reserves by the end of the year (as the province has told municipalities they can) while deferring capital projects this year. . Frankly, the publicly funded bus company, Metro Vancouver, is not part of the provincial public sector, no matter how much taxpayers` money is thrown into each year.
This will also have an impact on negotiations with another union, MoveUP, which has not yet issued a strike notice.
