Strike Information

Contact information:

561 Picketing site locations.

1. Lougheed Town Center Station (Exchange)

              Times:  6AM to 7PM Mon. to Fri., still working on hours for the weekend.

Location – on Gatineau Pl, across the street from 9850 Gatineau Pl, Burnaby

    1. Bay 1 (maximum 10 picketers) – it is a small area in the bus loop. We have small presence there of about 3-5 picketers.

This is where the picketing will normally be every day as it has the best visibility. As stated, the maximum number of picketers we can have at Bay 1 is 10 picketers.

    1. If there is a desire to assist the picketers at this location with supporting picketers, and if the number would be more than 10, it is requested to contact the Picket Coordinator at at least one day in advance. With one day notice, the strike location at Lougheed Town Center Station can start at a location near the sidewalk on Gatineau Pl that could accommodate many more picketers. Again, this would have to be coordinated in advance with at least one day’s notice. That location would be:

On the sidewalk on Gatineau Place between the car park and the fence demarking the end of the bus exchange. Picketing is prohibited for the first 3 metres of the sidewalk from the curb (“Gatineau Place”)

2.  First Transit Chilliwack Yard

Times:  24 hours per day for the week of the 20th March

              Location – 44275 Yale Road, Chilliwack

3.  First Transit Abbotsford Yard

Times:  24 hours per day for the week of the 20th March

Two locations, an entrance, and an exit.

              Location – 3032 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford

              The main entrance is around the corner on Pratt Street. That is where the media are usually set up. That is where most of the picketers are and where there is parking available.
