Two major contracts in Ontario — for the Toronto Transit Commission streetcars and Metrolinx GO Transit rail cars — are slated to halt by the end of the year.
Local union president Dominic Pasqualino said he fears more job losses are on the horizon beyond the initial 550 as the contracts wind down.
"This business is cyclical. Things go up, things go down. But the thing is, it doesn't look like things are going to go back up," he said in an interview.
"Now you're looking at these people moving from Thunder Bay or working in the logging industry or the mining industry. It's very disruptive."”
If people don’t buy your railcars, what are you going to do?
