Thanks to The Public Record for getting the stats on HSR's "absenteeism" rate. It's not a job action, and it's not just operators not showing up to work. That so-called absenteeism rate includes disability leave, mat leave and more.

In Chile, bus privatization meant workers faced "illegal contract modifications, unpaid overtime, absence of a workplace safety and training committee, insufficient timeclocks and payroll tracking, lack of provision for water and restroom facilities, deficient vacation time, erroneous paychecks." Riders, meanwhile, waited for buses so long that they began to spontaneously protest in the streets. Transit privatization is a lose-lose situation.

Further to the news articles and ATU 107 Eric Tuck's open letter from last week, Hamilton City Council has approved hiring 58 more bus drivers to deal with management created labour shortages. This is an example of the power we have when we demand better, and the power we have to influence our public transit when it is publicly owned and operated.

In Brazil, transit privatization meant higher fares and worse service. Eventually the Brazilian people stood up and said "enough." #KeepTransitPublic
