Wednesday, March 30, 2005 - TTC strike called unlikely

Veteran City Council windbag Howard Moscoe is trying to assure us that there will be no TTC strike. Perhaps so, but having personal experience in dealing with Councilllor Moscoe, I'm not reassured. The man is either severely myopic - or holds the truth in low regard. - TTC strike called unlikely

My guess is that there will be a settlement at a little over 2% a year - but the contract will be loaded with expensive goodies on the benefits side.

The TTC should be negotiating improvments in the union's atrocious record on absenteeism and the associated overtime. I'm not hopeful that this issue will be tackled. Like everyone, I'll have to wait and see.
