Watching: HSR negotiations today (Jan 24 2012)

The City of Hamilton and the union representing transit operators, mechanics and administrative support staff will meet at the negotiating table later today.

The two sides are apart on few issues and talks could go into the evening.

There’s no way of reading into the status of talks by their length. A late evening could equally mean they are close to a deal or they are far apart.

I’m expecting statements from both the union and city tonight.

I’ll tweet and post as soon as I recieve anything.
