Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 685 officials said they will stop picketing for the next couple of days at the downtown bus terminal in
Brantford, Ontario, as a good faith gesture to show they are serious about ending a strike that is affecting paratransit service.
"This is a good faith gesture on the part of our members, who are part of the community they serve,” said Larry Kinnear, ATU international vice president. “If we cannot reach a settlement, however, picketing will resume.”
ATU is calling for the city of Brantford to end the use of private contractors for its paratransit services.
