Commuters should prepare for possible services disruptions at Toronto's Union Station on Wednesday after nearly 100 employees at the transportation hub walked off the job.
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

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.
