I'm writing to show my support for the 5,000 hard-working transit workers on strike.

Like any other industry, Metro Vancouver transit workers should be paid comparable to what their peers are paid in other cities—or even just across town. Coast Mountain Bus Company’s maintenance workers are paid less than workers at Skytrain doing the same job with the same skills. Transit operators salaries should be closely aligned with other major metropolitan areas, such as Toronto and Edmonton.

I demand you acknowledge the important role that transit workers play in a system that is both under stress and expanding. Negotiate a fair contract for Unifor Local 111 and 2200 now!
