Transit workers in the Fraser Valley are on strike for fair wages and a fair pension.
These workers, who ensure everyone in our communities has an affordable, safe, and reliable way to travel, make 32% less than other transit operators in our region, and have no pension benefits.
Fraser Valley transit workers need a fair deal: one that ensures they don’t need to work a second or third job just to make ends meet, and one that provides an ability to retire after a career spent getting Fraser Valley residents where they need to go.
The foreign-owned, for-profit contractor hired by BC Transit to provide service to our community has failed. They refuse to pay workers what other transit operators in region are paid, putting their profits before the needs of transit workers and riders and our community.
It is time for BC Transit and our elected decision-makers to take responsibility for the failure of their contractor, and do the right thing to support transit users and workers.
