I stand corrected...some what..http://atulocal1290.webs.com/
The City of Moncton and Codiac Transpo have cut 14 full time
positions and reduced service by more than 500 hours per week
Codiac transpo has been operating with 4 mechanics for the past 4 years and
operated at full capacity. Two short of the six they're stating that is needed to
run safely!!!! There have been repeated requests over the past two years for
the city to hire more mechanics, these request were denied until March 23, 2012.
As a result of 1 mechanic retiring they have now slashed over 500 hours of service
(14 of 55 full time positions) per week and would have you believe this is a result
of the current labour negotiations.....This is a failure to manage!
The city has stated that the retiring of one of its mechanics has led to these types
of service reductions for safety reasons....they cut 14 full time positions
(500+ hours of service per week).The city states they need six mechanics to
maintain a fleet of this size.
