I feel like there’s going to be a lot of this forthcoming with the inflation numbers. Collective agreements compensation rates haven’t been tied to inflation for quite awhile but every union is going to try to change that this time around.

Record profits plus rising inflation/​housing costs plus stagnant wages is hopefully a recipe for a new era of labour power and bringing things more into balance

But I can see all kinds of ongoing distraction/​amplification/​repetition (Freedom convoy etc.) in an attempt to hinder this

The Union Station Rail Corridor still relies on a complicated manual interlock signalling system from nearly 100 years ago! Metrolinx, which owns this stretch of rail as a 'public corporation' and orders to operate as if they were for-profit, is replacing experienced labour with management. This could spell disaster as we saw management step in during recent high-profile strikes (John Deere) and make big mistakes.

Fuck. Will this affect train times? Guess I’m taking the Stabway tomorrow.
