The City of Brampton and Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1573 continue to negotiate a collective agreement. In the event of a transit strike, Brampton Transit and Züm buses will not operate; all transit facilities and terminals will be closed. The Union will be in a legal strike position at 12:01 a.m. on May 9, 2016.
If there is a transit strike, all Peel District School Board schools and programs (e.g. Dual Credit Programs, Co-operative Education Programs, Night School classes, etc.) will remain open and continue to run. Students who use Brampton Transit will be responsible for making alternative transportation arrangements to attend school and/or their programs. All Peel board operated school buses will continue to run.
