UWindsor And St. Clair Release Bus Strike Plans

Sunday January 14th, 2024, 4:52pm


Almost 300 workers of Transit Windsor could be on the picket line at 12:01am on Monday, January 15th. The University of Windsor and St. Clair College have released plans should the strike happen.

University of Windsor:

If students cannot attend class or labs due to transportation challenges created by this situation, you are asked to contact your instructor(s) to inform them as soon as possible. They are aware and are preparing temporary ways to support.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to work closely with their immediate supervisor to discuss options for expanding remote work if operationally feasible.

More information can be found here.

St. Clair College:

In the event of a potential strike, as a proactive measure to assist in facilitating academic learning, the College will provide all students who hold a valid Transit Windsor bus pass with a $275.00 credit that will be applied to their student accounts to offset any additional expenses they may incur in finding alternate transportation. This will be done in the form of a bursary and is outside the potential possibility of receiving any refund from Transit Windsor for the cost of your “Transit Windsor Bus Pass” prorated for the Winter semester.

As the College expects extra traffic related to dropping off and picking up students, and since Transit Windsor buses will not be in the front of the College bus loop, the College will temporarily allow cars into the bus loop to drop off and pick up students. Use the bus loop for a “quick” drop off and pick up activity, and use the T lot, the visitor lot across from the main entrance, as a cell phone lot. This means that, temporarily, this lot can be used to park while waiting for students to be picked up. Individuals must remain in their vehicles. Additional guards will be on duty for traffic control.
