How about trying to negotiate with a multinational whose first offer to the bus drivers was a 25 cent increase? Support the bus drivers, increase the demand for services, and sort out all the issues around regional transportation this province has. DO NOT BLAME THE BUS DRIVERS who are overworked, receive no extrra pay for overtime, escort frail people in places they shouldn't (like up ramps that are illegal), they have been asked to shovel sidewalks, escort people door to door, listen to people who want to die because they are so ill, get yelled at when they are 'late;' people don't know the company is fined when they are EARLY; that is a company policy, not the union's. This company is so bad they can't even find enough drivers who want the crappy job. The drivers are berated for everything from the service to the weather. Never mind the insurance issue if a bus drivers slips and falls on YOUR property. The company won't cover the drivers if that occurs.Now, who needs a union? Everyone.
