As you may know, there have been ongoing contract discussions between the City of Winnipeg and the Amalgamated Transit Union.
Currently, the City of Winnipeg and the union representing transit workers are at an impasse on contract negotiations and there is a potential for a strike in the fall.
If you have learners in grades 7 - 12 who depend on public transportation to get to and from school, I would encourage you to look at other ways for them to get to and from their destination.
I also ask that parents and guardians follow the news to learn of any potential announcements regarding a disruption in services. We will update the LRSD website with any new information that affects learners in the division when it becomes available.
A potential Winnipeg Transit strike would not impact students in K-6 who qualify for LRSD busing.
