Background

Unionized transit operators and mechanics in Whistler, Squamish, and Pemberton have been negotiating a new contract for more than a year. Without a fair offer from management, we had little choice but to begin a legal strike on January 29, 2022.

About Us

Unifor Local 114 represents more than 80 transit workers across the three municipalities. We are proud to provide transit service in our communities.

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 red-hot housing/rental market. We’re asking the employer to increase wages and introduce a pension plan to close the gap with transit workers in Metro Vancouver. To make matters worse, 38% of our workforce isn’t eligible for health benefits. We are fighting to fix that and increase the amount of job security for the bus drivers laid off seasonally.
