ATU Kelowna would like all of our passengers and customers of BC Transit to be aware of this and be able to get to work on time. Due to the shortages, some runs may get missed, and we hope that it isn’t yours.

For any members of ATU 1722 that can drive conventional bus, there are runs that are not going out due to shortage of drivers.

At this time the Union is permitting drivers on vacation to come in and work if they wish (At OT). This is NOT our preferred choice, as unions have fought for vacations for decades, however, our fellow citizens who rely on the buses are suffering.

The executive is doing everything in our power to help. Any other assistance is greatly appreciated.


Fraternally Yours,

ATU 1722 Executive Board
