as alot fo you probably heard, on december 10th, thats next week, the OC Transpo employees aer going on strike, that means no more buses until all this is over.

this thread probably only affects the people who actually take the bus; but is anyone but me, royally pissed off right now, considering the bus being my most vital way to travel. like wtf, i have to take the bus everyday and out nall times that this couldve happened it happens next week during my crunch time!!

I'M ****ING PISSED OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


considering this is only about oc transpo and ottawa, this thread probably wont last long, so make the most of it and discuss.

Strikes by a big public service are always a pain in the ass, but they probably didn't take the decision lightly.

I misread "For" as "Fat".

I hate strikes.

They've already been offered a $7+ pay increase over a number of years...

If this happens, they [the bus drivers] will be paid just as much as public teachers...

Understandably the bus system is an essential service (not formally... but it obviously is in a larger city) but it's strange to think that someone who spends 5+ years in formal educational institutions gets paid just as much as someone who doesn't necessarily need the schooling.

The roads were over filling with traffic, even a short trip of like 15 minutes a became 2 hours long.
