TORONTO — GO Transit says bus service at Toronto’s Union Station is disrupted due to a protest by striking workers, with some lines delayed and others rerouted to other transit hubs.

Ninety-five workers with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers went on strike a week ago and started holding daily pickets over the weekend.

The workers are signals and communication workers as well as train movement directors at Union Station.

GO Transit says demonstrators gathered again Wednesday morning near the Union Station Bus Terminal and are restricting access to the facility.

The workers have been without a new contract since December 2019.
