Winnipeg - Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union 1505 have overwhelmingly voted no to the City of Winnipeg’s 2nd contract offer with 96.59% of the membership voting against the City’s offer. The 2nd offer was presented to the ATU on May 17th, and came after the ATU engaged in legal job action. While the rejection of the contract does provide a strike mandate and strike sanctions for ATU members, the ATU will be reaching out to the City to resume bargaining at the earliest opportunity.

Response to City Bringing Negotiations Into The Public March 28th/19

"It is unfortunate that the City of Winnipeg feels the need to bring negotiations between the City and the ATU 1505 into the public for the second time in four years. If the City of Winnipeg felt that they had made a fair offer to our membership, than we sincerely doubt that they would be releasing public statements regarding the proposal to the media and general public.


On March 21st, we received the offer from the City of Winnipeg bargaining team. Per mutual agreement at that meeting, we are bringing that offer to our members over the coming days. We were hopeful that the City of Winnipeg would bargain in good faith and allow us to take their proposal to our members, but it would appear that they are not interested in engaging in a collaborative process. The City is also incorrect in stating that a rejection of the contract vote would equate to a strike vote and any strike action would be authorized by the ATU 1505 membership in a separate vote.


We encourage the City of Winnipeg to follow the advice of Mayor Brian Bowman, by not negotiating in the media and waiting for the results of the vote by our membership and returning to the negotiating table at that time."


The ATU 1505 will not be making any further public comments on the state of negotiations until after the vote by our membership.
