Members of the union representing Saskatoon’s transit workers held a special meeting on Monday.
Members of Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 615 met at a Saskatoon hotel. A note on the union’s website billed the meeting as a bargaining update and a discussion of potential job action.
The workers have been without a contract since 2012. So far, negotiations with the city have failed to produce a deal.
The union would be required to give 48 hours’ notice in order to strike.
In an emailed statement, Marno McInnes, the city’s director of human resources, declined to comment on the specifics of the negotiations.
“We understand the public interest in this issue; however, given the current state of bargaining with the Transit union we are declining interviews or declining to making detailed statements related to our discussions. We are committed to reaching a resolution to this impasse and achieve a new collective agreement,” he wrote.
