VAUGHAN, Ont. - Commuters in York Region, just north of Toronto, should know this evening whether they could be hit with a transit strike.
Bus drivers are voting today on a contract offer they rejected last week from Veolia Transportation.
They asked for a new vote and put off a strike that had been planned for Tuesday.
The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 admits it's an unusual situation but agreed to hold another vote.
The results are expected about 7:30 p.m.
A strike would affect 24 bus routes and 28,000 commuters, mostly in Vaughan and some routes in Richmond Hill, Newmarket, Aurora, Markham and the Township of King.
