Update: All GO service will run as usual now that an agreement has been reached between CP and its labour union that helps maintain and operate our network.

GO Transit has advised of a potential service disruption of train service to Hamilton in the coming days.

Canadian Pacific Rail labour unions are in a legal strike position as of 10:00pm on Tuesday, May 29th, which may impact some GO train services. While GO is hopeful that an agreement can be reached, the regional transit agency has plans in place if a strike occurs.

CP owns a section of corridor leading into Hamilton GO Centre.

If there is a labour disruption, there will be fewer staff members available to address any signal or switch issues, meaning longer delays for Lakeshore West customers travelling eastbound on train trips which begin at Hamilton GO and for customers travelling westbound between Aldershot and Hamilton GO if there is an issue

More to come.
