Workers in Canada’s financial capital face a difficult Monday commute as 2,200 transportation staff in the Toronto area will be on strike. Schools are also in upheaval after education support workers walked out. 

The Amalgamated Transit Union and Metrolinx, the agency that runs parts of the region’s public-transit network, were unable to reach an agreement over the weekend. Drivers and other staff essential to the GO Bus service will be off the job on Monday.
