Quebec drivers reject cuts

Bus drivers in Longueuil, Quebec, could take strike action on April 28 if little progress is made in negotiations with their employer. Seven-hundred drivers with the Reseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) have been without a contract for 16 months.
The union is upset with the company’s demands for more than $1 million in concessions. Much of the anger stems from proposed cuts to family leave. At a general meeting on Sunday, members voted in favour of pressure tactics.
