Unifor Local 4304, the union representing Grand River Transit (GRT) has ratified the new tentative agreement with the Region of Waterloo.

A special regional council meeting has been scheduled for Jan 31 at 11 a.m. to approve the deal.

If the council votes in favour, GRT bus service will resume on the morning of Feb 1.
