Bus drivers at the Société de transport de Laval (STL) signed a tentative agreement yesterday, which brings them one step closer to signing their first labour contract as CUPE affiliates. The agreement was reached following a blitz of conciliation talks that started on Monday.

Last week, the union called off the one-day strike planned for Monday, January 10. The goal was to give conciliation a fighting chance and their strategy seems to have paid off.

Out of respect for members, details of the agreement will not be made public until they have had a chance to read them and hold a vote. A general assembly is already scheduled for January 16.

The 500 or so bus drivers have been without a work contract since July 31, 2009. They joined the ranks of CUPE in September.
