In such an eventuality, ATU Local 1505 will be honouring CUPE Local 500’s picketing lines and will not cross them until CUPE 500 allows us to do so.  Due to this, we anticipate delays around the garages and major transit service disruptions.  Please ensure to govern yourself accordingly and adjust your commute time as needed.
