The transit union in Saskatoon has voted 92.4-percent in favour of not voting on the city’s latest offer.
The city says it’s their final offer.
The city’s corporate Performance General Manger, Catherine Gryba, calls it extremely disappointing.
She says, “In the current economic downturn, a ten-percent wage increase is certainly above what many workers would receive elsewhere.”
At this point, no job action has been taken. Jeff Jorgenson, the General Manager of Transportation and Utilities says, “Transit customers should sign up for service alerts, or check the web site every day for updates on any service changes should the Transit union choose to withdraw services.”
