June 22, 2011, 8:45 AM EST
The CAW is back at the negotiating table with Grand River Transit June 22-24 in the hope of reaching a new collective agreement.
CAW Local 4304 President Rick Lonergan said that so far, the process has been unnecessarily drawn out, but he is hopeful that talks will come to a positive resolution.
CAW Local 4304 represents 550 conventional and specialized transit drivers, mechanics and service personnel.
"We're optimistic that we can reach a fair and just collective agreement with the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, well before the service expansion planned for September," said Lonergan.
The collective agreement with Grand River Transit expired on December 31, 2010.
