Despite my very real fears that there would be no SkyTrain service today, a deal was brokered this morning at 5am. I woke up and heard the faint sounds of a train in the distance. That was my first indication that the trains would be running. Because the deal was reached in the eleventh hour, service was actually delayed from it’s normal start up time. By my calculations, service started at least an hour later than usual. It’s quite possible for some people that rely on the first set of trains in the morning, they were late for wherever they needed to be. Of course, by the time I left for work, it was business as usual.
I wonder how many years there will be labour peace for the last two unions before this stuff rears its head again?
