Statement by the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Canada's Minister of Labour

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2010) - I congratulate Greyhound Canada Transportation ULC, Eastern Division, (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1415, for having successfully reached a settlement that will sustain an ongoing service to Canadian travellers. The best resolution in labour negotiations is one that the parties reach themselves.

I applaud the negotiating teams for reaching a resolution without a work stoppage. I also appreciate the efforts of the federal mediators who helped the parties reach an agreement. Our government supports strong labour-management relations that benefit our country's economic prosperity, the security of Canadians, and service to our communities.
