The Region of Waterloo is advising that labour action may cause disruption to local Grand River Transit, Bus Plus and MobilityPLUS operators starting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 14, 2020 if an agreement is not reached today.
This strike action is not linked to the negotiations between the Ministry of Education and education sector workers. However, it may cause disruption for some of our students and their families who use public transport to get to and from school.
School bus services are not affected and will operate normally.
All schools will be open as normal. We encourage our affected students to try to find alternate means of transportation to school.
Students who are assigned public bus passes by their school and who are absent as a result of the strike action will be marked absent using a code that will ensure this will not count towards their report card. If students are able to get to school, they will be marked as present.
