Letter on the BC Business Review of Greyhound Canada - September 2017

ATU 1374


Your Local 1374 leaders are proceeding with court action and demanding that STC bargain seriously. Now it's time for you, the members, to bring the fight to every terminal, every bus, and every stop that STC serves!

To save STC - and our careers - we need to help organize the growing chorus of community leaders and riders who are rallying against these cruel cuts.

Saskatchewan provincial government is closing the doors at STC - March 2017

Brothers and Sisters, we were shocked, appalled and dismayed by the news that after 70 years of continual service in Saskatchewan, the provincial government has decided to shutter STC as of May 31, 2017. We are all still reeling from this distressing news, as are our 200+ members that are affected by this poorly made decision.

The Saskatchewan Transportation Company has, for 70 years, provided bus and freight service to rural communities in Saskatchewan, solely for the benefit of the people of Saskatchewan and has consistently ranked in the high 90's in customer satisfaction, something rarely heard of in this day and age. As a Crown property, unlike privately owned corporation, they were not only beholden to profit, but to continuously provide safe and invaluable inter-city transit to those who lived outside the major cities. This respected service allowed for seniors to continue to live in their smaller communities, and those who needed specialist medical treatment to avail themselves of the bus when travelling from outside of Regina or Saskatoon to appointments.

This is a difficult time and we will hold this government to account. To quote then STC Minister Jennifer Campeau in the company's 2016 annual report:

"By linking communities, people and businesses, STC serves the customer and the shareholder. STC provides citizens with access to essential services in larger and rural communities. Entrepreneurs across the province have access to shipping services that can supply parts or distribute products, expanding markets beyond their local community."

BC Greyhound Retirees Christmas Party - December 2016

A note from Vancouver Retiree George Cameron:
 The 44 retired greyhound drivers and wives celebrated their 13th annual Christmas dinner at the roadhouse Grill in Surrey in November. It was great to see so many of our past working colleagues enjoying a wonderful evening together.
 For the past 13 years, these dinners have been organized by Marilyn Scott the wife of John Scott in Surrey. This event has been held at many venues, but we have found a home at the Roadside Grill. It is not only the home for the Christmas parties but has been used for the birthday parties and anniversaries of the drivers themselves and their spouses.
 I would encourage other regions to also celebrate Christmas with the retired drivers and spouses around Canada. Last year, I was able to attend the Calgary Greyhound Retirees Luncheon and got to see so many of the drivers there. With so many of our drivers creeping up in old age we often wonder are they going to be there next year.
 That is why we are working with Marilyn to have a summer get together as well in June or July of 2017. This way possibly some of the folks from outside the area that are visiting could possibly attend this gathering as well.
 Marilyn would like to thank all of those who attended this year's event. We look forward to our summer one and the 14th annual Christmas party in 2017. Merry Christmas and all the best to you and your family over the holidays.
