Bus talks could resume

Codiac Transpo bus drivers voted a 94 per cent strike mandate over the weekend. Vanessa Blanch talks to the opposing sides in this labour management dispute threatens to disrupt the daily commute for thousands of passengers. However the city and the union still hope to avert a strike.

Paul Thomson speaks for the City of Moncton.

George Turple is president of the union representing bus operators, mechanics and service people.

Both sides say they're willing to meet again. The City of Moncton says that could happen this Thursday. The union is required to give 24 hours-notice before taking any strike action.
