Negotiations At A Standstill As Bus Strike Looms

A bus strike could be coming: talks between Acadian Coach Lines and the union representing 70 employees have stalled.

VP of Communications for Acadian Marc-Andre Varin tells CHSJ News the company is ready to go back to the table but the union has stepped away for now.

If a deal is not made, service could be distrupted as early as November 21st.

Varin says as of right now, Acadian does not have a contingency plan in place as he is hopeful a deal can be worked out.

Issues in the negotiations include driver assignments and wages.
