On Saturday, the city invited union executives back to the bargaining table and on Sunday, negotiations resumed.
If strike action is taken, Jim Yakubowski, president of the transit union, said the intention wouldn't be to start with full removal of service. In its notice to the city, the union said strike action could include anything from slowdowns to overtime bans, not wearing uniforms, rotating strikes or a complete work stoppage.
