There will be no bus service in Guelph on Monday after transit union members voted on Sunday to reject an agreement struck a week ago.

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1189 members voted on Sunday to reject the latest offer by the city, which in turn said it would be locking out employees starting at midnight.

A tentative agreement endorsed by the union's executive had been negotiated in a 13-hour meeting the previous Sunday to avert a lockout that was to begin last Monday.

Andrew Cleary, president and business agent of Local 1189, said he was surprised by the outcome.

"I guess I didn't realize as many issues prevailed out there," said Cleary. He wasn't willing to elaborate further before meeting with city officials on Monday morning to discuss next steps.
