First they say no strike, then a week later they strike IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WITH NO WARNING.

Fuck them all. The entire city hates the transit union now because of this shit. 15:41, 26 April 2008 (UTC)someguyReply[reply]

What is the solution? edit

I don't even live in Toronto and all of this annoys me greatly. But my assumption is that they will be forced back to work and within the next few weeks they'll get there 11% raises and we won't speak of it again. What can be done about this? Why is it that the rest of the public doesn't believe they should be paid as much as they are and yet they continue to get paid more and more for a job that, with proper training, can be filled by just about anyone? 21:03, 26 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wow. As if poor service isn't enough. edit

I live in Montreal and have to deal with the stupid STM so I sympathise. Montreal and Toronto seriously have the worst public transit ever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:11, 26 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
