British Columbia, Nov 3 (Canadian-Media): Sixteen SeaBus sailings cancelled Sunday because of continued job action, media reports said.
The union, representing 5,000 bus drivers voted 99 per cent in favour of job action and served strike notice this week.
Contract talks broke down around noon Thursday and set the stage for the first phase of job action. Key issues in the ongoing contract dispute were wages, benefits, and working conditions.
As part of job action by transit operators across Metro Vancouver, sailings were first cancelled Friday afternoon as maintenance staff refused to work overtime.
On Friday, transit operators, like bus drivers, also refused to wear their Coast Mountain Bus Company uniforms in order to draw attention to their cause.
