City prepared to consider transit union counter-offer

Press release.

July 25, 2014 – Statements from Guelph Mayor and CAO regarding transit lockout

Statement from Mayor Karen Farbridge

On behalf of Council, I urge ATU to provide a counter-offer so that we have clarity on what they are seeking. That will allow us to move forward so that we can reach an agreement and get the buses moving again – which is what we all want for our riders, employees and the whole community.

Statement from Chief Administrative Officer Ann Pappert

There is a path forward beyond our current impasse, and we hope to have transit services running for our community soon.

In the interests of our community and our employees, we need to move past the months of unsuccessful negotiations.

To move forward, we need to see a reasonable and affordable counter-offer presented by the ATU Local 1189 executive that clearly represents the objectives of their membership.

The City will seriously consider that offer.
