Montreal Transit Commission Workers Vote To Go On Strike On Nov. 16

Monday, November 03, 2003

MONTREAL (CP) - Transit maintenance workers in Montreal voted Sunday to go on strike Nov. 16 if their contract dispute with the city is not resolved.

The strike vote passed with a 90 per cent majority, their union announced. The bus and subway workers have been without a contract since the beginning of the year and salary is a major sticking point in the negotiations.

Transit workers will have to supply essential services if they strike.
