After lengthy negotiations and a strike that lasted two weeks, members of Unifor Local 510 voted 93% in favor of a new collective agreement at a meeting on February 7, 2024.

Members began strike action on January 24 because the employer's wage offers were well below market standards.

"Despite the challenges encountered throughout the negotiation process, we were able to find common ground that meets the needs and concerns of our members," says Ysabel Vincelette, President of the Ro-Bus unit.

Jonathan Blais, Unifor National Representative, praised the dedication of the negotiating committee and the resilience of the members during this difficult period: "We are proud of the hard work and determination shown by our members throughout this strike. Their courage and solidarity were decisive in reaching a satisfactory agreement. "

Bus drivers resumed duties on February 12, ensuring the continuity of school transportation services for the community.
