Following a weekend of no cancellations, TransLink has announced they have pulled 14 SeaBus sailings for Monday, Nov. 11 due to the ongoing union job action.
The cancelled sailings further reduce the crossing opportunities between Lonsdale Quay and Waterfront Station due to Monday's Remembrance Day holiday schedule.
There are four morning cancellations and 10 evening cancellations:
While there are no announced bus route disruptions today, TransLink is reminding users that Remembrance Day activities in Vancouver may necessitate detours on certain routes. You will find those detour details on the TransLink site here.
The initial phase of the strike action by Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) employees represented by the Unifor union began on Nov. 1 at 8 a.m., with operators not wearing their CMBC uniforms and maintenance workers not doing overtime.
Unifor has indicated they are prepared to escalate the job action this week, including implementing an overtime ban for bus operators. Doing so would bring down an estimated 10-15% of operations for TransLink.
