Deal reached with SkyTrain workers

SKYTRAINS will be running this morning though there may be some delays as a deal was reached between BC Rapid Transit Company and CUPE 7000 that represents SkyTrain workers at 4:50 a.m.

There will probably be delays of at least an hour as the SkyTrains roll out on the Expo and Millennium lines as the systems are quite complex.

Michel Ladrak, President of BC Rapid Transit Company, said in a statement that BCRTC “has reached a negotiated, tentative deal with CUPE 7000, which represents about 900 SkyTrain employees including station attendants and maintenance trades workers.”

He added: “There will be some delays in the start of service on the Expo and Millennium Line this morning. I thank all of our customers and staff for their patience through this uncertain time.”
