College strike affecting Cornwall Transit

CORNWALL – College faculty walking the picket line has also affected Cornwall Transit.

The Montreal #3 service had to alter its route today and for the remainder of the strike as buses won’t be crossing the picket line.

Cornwall Transit is dropping off people at TAS Convenience on Montreal Road and picking up on the north side of the street.

Faculty were on the picket lines today (Monday) for the first day of their job action.

The Ontario Public Service Employees Union and the College Employer Council for the province’s 24 community colleges was unable to reach a tentative collective agreement.

The strike is affecting over a half million Ontario college students.
