[HALIFAX, NS] — Talks have broken up and the transit union is preparing for a strike.

Shane O’Leary with the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 508 told Metro at noontime the union’s bargaining team walked away because the city wouldn’t come to an agreement.

It happened at 11 a.m.

“The negotiations are over at this point,” he said. “As far as we’re concerned it’s a strike at the end of service day tomorrow.”

O’Leary said the union is now busy getting that message out to the workers.

The union has set Thursday at 12:01 a.m. as the time workers would hit the picket lines.
