ON: Talks Resuming in York Region Bus Strike

NEWMARKET, Ont. - Talks involving one of the three companies involved in the York Region transit strike are resuming today.

The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1587 and Miller Transit are returning to the bargaining table as the walkout enters its eighth week.

It's happening two days after negotiations with Veolia Transportation and ATU Local 113 resumed and quickly broke down again.

The union has said the main issues are the gap in wages and benefits between the York workers and their counterparts elsewhere in the Greater Toronto Area.

The regional government has said it will not intervene in the dispute involving Miller, Veolia and First Canada, or ask the province to legislate an end to the strike.
