Fewer buses are expected to be on the road this week because maintenance work is piling up. Mechanics have also refused to work overtime in the latest form of job action by the Canadian Auto Workers Local 333.
The unions 650 members stopped working overtime shifts because of a breakdown in contract negotiations with B.C. Transit. Drivers have also stopped wearing uniforms.
The problem with the overtime ban is that it just makes our flexibility and our ability to respond quickly to [personnel changes] more difficult, said Meribeth Burton, spokeswoman for B.C. Transit. Overtime is often used when a driver calls in sick, for example.
B.C. Transit is posting a list of cancelled trips at its website, bctransit.com.
