On January 21, 2020, Unifor Local 4304 - representing Grand River Transit/MobilityPLUS operators, dispatchers, fleet mechanics, and service attendants - went on strike. This job action left Wilfrid Laurier University students without access to bus service. The Students’ Union proactively communicated this impending service interruption and maintained an active list of alternative transportation options, while also provided regulate updates on the contract negotiations. After the strike ended on January 31, the Students’ Union worked in conjunction with the Graduate Students’ Association, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Region of Waterloo to ensure a partial refund to the U-Pass transit fee.
