Important Information – BTS Ottawa / Gatineau Daily Loans – LRC Update

Please see the below letter from the Labour Relations Committee




Last week during our LRC meetings, the Company and the Union came to the following agreement:


All employees of Ontario will be scheduled to work 40 hours per week, with no RPT being issued FSU and this offer will begin on Sunday, December 23, 2018 remaining in place until January 5, 2019.

During the period mentioned, the Union consents to having technicians from Gatineau being loaned daily to the Ottawa region.


If any employee in Ontario runs out of work during this period, call your manager or the duty manager to indicate that you are available for the remainder of your shift to assign work. If you go home you will not be paid your guaranteed hours.

Should the parties extend this agreement in the New Year for any period of time, we will send out a notice in advance


We wish you and your families a safe and happy Holiday and New Year!


In Solidarity,

From your Ontario BTS Bargaining Committee; Shawn Cowan, Jim Fling, Jeff Mark, Colum Lynn
