Potential disruptions to GRT buses

Posted on Wednesday April 26, 2023

Waterloo Region – Employees at the Region of Waterloo provide services to almost 650,000 residents every day. This work is critical and is valued and appreciated.

The Region is now in negotiations with UNIFOR, Local 4304, representing some workers employed by Grand River Transit (GRT).

We continue to work closely with UNIFOR and are committed to reaching an agreement that is competitive for GRT staff and affordable for residents.

Currently, UNIFOR, Local 4304, will be in a legal position to strike as early as May 1, 2023.

In the event of a strike, conventional bus, MobilityPLUS and busPLUS services will not operate. ION train service will continue as it is maintained and operated by Keolis.

The Region appreciates that customers rely on transit on a daily basis and is committed to updating customers and residents with information as soon as it becomes available.
