Council Ratifies Agreement with Transit Union

October 18, 2010 – City Council tonight ratified a three-year collective agreement with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966, which represents more than 130 employees.

The agreement runs from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2012 provides for the following wage increases: 2% on July 1, 2009, 1.75% wage on July 1, 2010, and 1.75% on July 1, 2011.

City Manager Tim Commisso praised both bargaining committees. “The negotiations leading to the agreement were intensive and lengthy,” he said. “Overall, both parties revised their positions to achieve a responsible three-year agreement that ensures uninterrupted operation of Transit service to the public. The agreement is fair recognizing the current economic realities facing the City and the specific circumstances of Thunder Bay Transit operators.”

The Union ratified the settlement on Oct. 15, 2010.
