VANCOUVER – The union representing transit supervisors with the Coast Mountain Bus Company says it has accepted recommendations from a mediator aimed at ending the possibility of strike action in Metro Vancouver.

A statement from CUPE 4500 says it’s now up to the bus company to accept the mediator’s plan, so further job action can be cancelled.

More coming.
