VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Post-secondary students heading into exams in Metro Vancouver could be in for some added stress if job action by SkyTrain workers goes ahead.
CUPE 7000, the union representing SkyTrain employees, says if no deal is reached by 5 a.m. on Tuesday, the Expo and Millennium lines will be shut down until 5 a.m. on Friday.
Tough luck if you have an exam at UBC and there’s a full shut down of the Expo and Millennium Line. UBC will operate as normal and scheduled exams will proceed. @NEWS1130

All thee schools are in the midst of the exam period and they are advising students who rely on SkyTrain to make travel plans.
SFU has not made an announcement about what will happen in the event of a three-day shutdown.
