Tentative deal in bus dispute

A tentative settlement has been reached in the Central Okanagan transit strike.

Buses could start running again on Thursday.

In a news release issued late Tuesday afternoon, First Canada, the company that operates the Kelowna Regional Transit System, said a tentative deal had been reached. Details of the settlement were not released.

First Canada said the 217 unionized workers would vote Wednesday to ratify the deal. If it’s approved, buses could run again on Thursday.
