After 6 long years of campaigning for driver safety, shields are finally getting installed in buses in the Central Okanagan.  BC Transit has a contrator in place to start installing shields in the buses at the end of this month.  ATU Local 1722 is not sure why this has taken so long, as we have had two drivers careers ended as a result of assaults.  This is a good step in driver protection.  See the news report below.
