DRT Members Ratify 3-Year Agreement
March 22, 2012 - 9:45pm EST
CAW Local 222 members at Durham Region Transit have ratified a new 3-year contract by 89.5%. The transit workers voted on the tentative agreement at two meetings on March 22.

“I’m very pleased with the results of the ratification meetings today”, said CAW Local 222 President Chris Buckley. “I thank the members of Durham Region Transit for their patience and solidarity during the bargaining process.”

"I also thank DRT chairperson John Johnson and the entire bargaining committee who were able to negotiate a new agreement, during tough economic times, that includes improvements for the transit workers."

Durham Region Transit was created on January 1, 2006, amalgamating Oshawa Transit, Ajax/Pickering Transit and Handi-Transit. CAW Local 222 represents approximately 350 members including the transit drivers, maintenance workers, clerical workers and specialized services workers.
