VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Transit job action could cause another headache for commuters who rely on the bus Monday.

Bus drivers will be refusing to do overtime Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week, which could impact 10 to 15 per cent of all bus routes.

Sunday afternoon, TransLink announced four SeaBus sailings have been cancelled.

This followed an announcement Sunday morning that warned of a major service disruption for the SeaBus.

 “The staffing shortage  issue behind the cancellations has been resolved,” says Jill Drews with TransLink.

The transit job action began at the beginning of November with bus drivers just refusing to wear their uniforms and maintenance workers refusing to do overtime.
