We, the undersigned, agree that OC Transpo is not acknowledging their employee frustration.

We stood behind the company throughout the pandemic, being front line workers, putting our own families at risk.

We are coming together to request an immediate halt to this new re-booking schedule.

OC Transpo is using 30 minute break to disrupt our Members quality of life.
This is not fair or right; OC Transpo needs to step up and treat Employees with respect.

This IPG aims to interpret the scope of section 169.1 under Division I of Part III of the Canada Labour Code and to clarify the associated expression "break of at least 30 minutes during every period of 5 consecutive hours of work".
This amendment took effect for Transit employees on February 01, 2022.

Our ATU 279 Union negotiated paid breaks on behalf of Union members.

This petition is for better quality of work and work-life balance.

Please sign our petition.
