More strike fun

05.15.07

First it’s the local public transit that’s threatening to strike. And now, the longer-distance buses are getting in on the fun, too:

Unionized drivers, mechanics and terminal staff at Greyhound Canada have given the bus line 72 hours’ strike notice after the workers rejected the company’s last contract offer, both sides said on Tuesday.

Unlike public transit, Greyhound isn’t exactly an essential service. There are plenty of other – more comfortable and civilized – ways to get from place to place. But all these transit strikes are starting to feel positively… European.
