The STL claims that the tactic led to an unusually high number of late arrivals on November 18, creating prejudice for its ridership. The transport authority says it recorded service slowdowns which created 250 delays on various bus lines.

A day of strike planned by the drivers’ union for November 15 has been canceled, but two more days of strike are scheduled for November 26 and 27. There will be service during peak hours and late at night.

Contractual talks between the STL and the drivers have stalled on salaries, schedules and the future of certain bus lines deemed insufficiently in demand to be maintained.

The STL affirms that its contract offer to the drivers is comparable to what has been accepted by other unions within the transport company.
