SkyTrain strike averted with last-minute deal

Expo and Millennium lines would have been shut down today if the strike had gone ahead.

A SkyTrain strike has been averted as a tentative deal was reached early Tuesday morning between BC Rapid Transit Company and CUPE 7000.

The Expo and Millennium Lines would have been shut down from Tuesday to Thursday if this deal hadn’t been negotiated.

TransLink had been warning commuters of more congestion on buses and other rapid transit lines if the strike had started.

The transit authority is warning there might be a few delays as the system gets back up and running.
