A statement from the union said there was still time to avoid that scenario:

"The Negotiating Committee of Local 1005 remains committed to sitting down with Metro Transit to hammer out an agreement to settle the contract, and hope to schedule dates soon."

The last time Metro Transit workers went on strike was 2004. It lasted six weeks.
