Bus drivers in York Region say they will go on strike Monday morning if their bargaining committee can't reach an 11th-hour agreement with First Student and Miller Transit.

The local Amalgamated Transit Union said Thursday that bargaining units for Richmond Hill, Markham, Georgina, Aurora and Newmarket rejected the company's most recent offers and are now in a position to go on strike.

“Union members will accommodate our passengers until the end of business on October 23rd,” a statement on the union's website says.

The statement notes that the union's bargaining committee is prepared to continue negotiations until the strike is set to begin.

ATU Local 1587 represents about 250 bus drivers and maintenance staff at Miller Transit and more than 90 bus drivers at First Student, according to the union.
