NEWMARKET, Ont. - Striking workers with two of the companies involved in York Region's transit dispute will be voting on the latest contract offer.
Workers with Miller Transit will vote on Friday while those with Veolia Transportation will cast ballots next week.
Initially, union representatives rejected putting the offers to their members but a Labour Relations Board ruling is forcing them to at least present the offer.
The third company is called First Canada but its workers are not immediately voting.
Meanwhile, workers continued to picket this morning in Vaughan.
The strike, now in its 11th week, affects more than 44,000 York Region commuters daily.
