Dear HWCDSB families and staff,

We wanted to inform you of a potential disruption to the Hamilton Street Railway Service. As you may be aware, as part of the collective bargaining process the members of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) will be voting on the City of Hamilton’s final offer on Sunday, November 5, 2023. Subject to the outcome of the vote, there exists the possibility of a disruption to public transit (HSR) services. We understand that any disruption in service has the potential to impact routines and preparedness will be essential for affected students, staff and school communities. We encourage families to consider alternative transportation arrangements in the event of a disruption. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide updates as we become aware of them.
