Ontario Northland and the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference, representing the Company’s motor coach operators, announced today that they have reached a tentative labour agreement.

“We are very pleased to have reached a tentative settlement with Teamsters,” said Beverly Martin, chief communications officer with the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission.
“We are anxious to resume full motor coach operations as soon as possible and apologize once again to all of our customers, who have been inconvenienced by this recent labour disruption.”

“The motor coach operators are dedicated professionals who came to the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference to provide the representation necessary to make a variety of improvements within their collective agreement. While this strike has been difficult for the people of this region, we believe this settlement is fair to the union members and we are proud to represent such professionals in the transportation industry,” said Douglas Finnson, vice president, Teamsters Canada Rail Conference.

Details of the 52 month contract, which is retroactive to Sept. 1, 2006 and expires Dec. 31, 2010, are being withheld pending presentation to the Teamsters membership, which includes 50 ONTC motor coach operators working in North Bay, Timmins and Sudbury. Ratification meetings are currently being scheduled.

Ontario Northland will be working to resume full motor coach services early next week. Additional information will be communicated as it becomes available, through the media and on the company’s web site, at
