TransLink has confirmed that another six SeaBus sailings will be cancelled today as a result of the transit strike issued by Unifor, the union representing bus operators and transit maintenance workers.
Yesterday, the transit authority also stated that it would be cancelling six of its scheduled sailings; the same six sailings will be cancelled today.
- The 4:10pm from Lonsdale Quay and 4:25pm from Waterfront will be cancelled
- The 6:20pm from Lonsdale Quay and 6:35pm from Waterfront will be cancelled
- The 7:30pm from Lonsdale Quay and 7:45pm from Waterfront will be cancelled
TransLink has been scaling back sailings on the busy Waterfront to Lonsdale Quay connector since Friday, Nov. 1, when Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) operators and maintenance workers represented by Unifor began job action.

TransLink tweeted that it also anticipated possible disruptions to bus service, but it did not provide any further information.
The initial phase of the strike action began on Nov. 1 at 8 a.m., with operators not wearing their CMBC uniforms and maintenance workers not doing overtime.
