There was a strike in the early 80's, and one before that to 'Say No to part time'. So the fight was to protect full time shifts from being cut up and served to part timers. Not sure of all the details, but there are part timers now, and there are lots of stipulations. The full time operators signing big paying shifts didn't want to lose their work. I guess they've got things arranged now so that (mostly) everyone is happy.

Vancouver has no part time staff on big bus for that reason. All the part timers are on Community Shuttle.

Calgary has 60 hour conventional bus operators (per two weeks) as well as 75 hour conventional bus operators. And then there is now full and part time community shuttle operators...

So my other question, is the reason ETS uses 1/4 the shuttles calgary uses based on higher ridership, or based on the way the hours and union and employees work it?
