Metrobus and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) 1462 — the union representing bus drivers and maintenance employees — have reached a tentative collective agreement avoiding a possible work stoppage, it was announced Wednesday.

A news release states the two sides had been working with the help of a conciliator over the past few months. The agreement still needs to be ratified by union members.

A strike date had been set for Oct. 5.

The collective agreement expired May 31, 2019. 

The St. John’s Transportation Commission, as Metrobus, operates 22 fixed-transit routes, five of which are wheelchair accessible, and services more than three million rides annually.
