This week is Rail Safety Week. It’s an important time to educate the public about the basics of rail safety by, for instance, reminding everyone never to approach tracks except at designated grade crossings. Additionally, it’s important to always remain alert near tracks: trains can pass at any time, are quieter than ever, and can take kilometers to come to a full stop.
Workers at Unifirst Canada in Langley, BC, voted 93% earlier this week to end their four-week strike and ratify a new three-year contract. Workers secured an inflation-beating 10% raise in the first year, a 2% raise in the second, and a 3% raise in the third. Drivers at the company also secured bonuses.
