“A five-year labour agreement with Teamster’s Division 910 allows us to continue to provide safe and reliable motorcoach services to the province.” “It was great to share this new agreement with our membership for review and consideration,” stated Paul Boucher, TCRC executive member.

“The agreement addresses a number of topics that were important to members with a focus on quality of life.  In the transportation industry, families are affected, which was recognized by Ontario Northland and the majority of issues addressed in this round of bargaining.”

Details of the agreement will not be released until the members of the Teamsters Division 910 have had an opportunity to review and vote on the tentative agreement.

Last year, Ontario Northland made 298,000 passenger trips on its motor coaches and handled over 100,000 bus parcels.
