Background

Unionized transit Operators, Office staff and Mechanics in Salmon Arm and Vernon have been negotiating a new contract for more than a year. Without a fair offer from management, we had little choice but to take a strike vote and serve notice to possible strike actions.

What’s at stake

Like you, we’re finding it difficult to make ends meet with the region’s high cost of living and the housing crisis. We’re asking the employer to close the gap with transit workers in Kelowna and Kamloops and introduce a pension plan.

To make matters worse, 25% of us are not allowed to qualify for the current RRSP benefit. We are fighting to fix that with a proper pension for all and increase the amount of work life balance for the workers in the transit sector.
