Members’ readiness to strike played a crucial role in achieving a negotiated settlement

Laval, April 16, 2023 – Teamsters Canada is pleased to share that all drivers from the five bargaining units employed by Autobus Campeau are now accepting, in the process of accepting, or considering a new offer from the Autobus Campeau. Thanks to successful rounds of negotiations, the strike action set for April 17 has effectively been averted. 

Jean Chartrand, president of Teamsters Local Union 106, the local involved in the negotiation, commented following the agreement, “Our members’ readiness to strike played a crucial role in achieving a negotiated settlement resolution. It shows the power of solidarity and our members’ unwavering determination to fight for their rights.”

Autobus Campeau’s new offers address drivers’ concerns, including fair wage increases and reasonably long work contracts. As a result, thousands of students in the Laurentides and Outaouais regions will continue to enjoy uninterrupted school bus service.

“We couldn’t be happier to have reached a resolution that benefits our members and avoids complications,” said François Laporte, president of Teamsters Canada. “This outcome showcases our unwavering commitment to securing the best possible working conditions for our members and underlines the importance of a strong, united front during negotiations.”

Teamsters Canada would like to thank all parties involved for their efforts these last few days in reaching this mutually beneficial agreement.

With over 125,000 members, Teamsters Canada is the country’s largest transportation and supply chain union. The organization represents workers at CP, CN, UPS, Purolator, countless trucking companies, and more. They are affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which represents over 1.2 million workers in North America.
