MEDIA RELEASE
For Immediate Release: Monday, April 18, 2016

(North Bay) The Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (Ontario Northland) and Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Division 910 announced that they have reached a tentative, five-year agreement.  

The tentative agreement covers 54 employees working as Motor Coach Operators, Operator Labourers and Dispatchers.  

“We are very pleased to have reached a tentative agreement with Teamsters,” says Corina Moore, President and CEO.  “The union and the employees play an important and vital role to the success of Ontario Northland.”  

“The tentative agreement will be placed before our membership for their review and consideration as part of our ratification process,” says Greg Baker, representative of the local Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Division.  “Our bargaining committee is recommending acceptance of this tentative agreement to our membership”.  The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference membership provides a professional level of service and contributes to the continued success of bus service for people across the north.

Ontario Northland has reached five-year agreements with all five of its unions in the past year. This is an important milestone as the 115-year-old organization continues to move forward and transform into a sustainable and valued transportation leader.
