Travellers headed into Toronto’s busy Union Station were set to face some headaches this morning.

Toronto Terminals Railway, the company that maintains the station, had set a strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. today.

The company has been around for more than a century, providing construction, operations and maintenance services.

In July, railway workers represented by the Canadian Autoworkers Association local voted 94 per cent in favour of a possible strike.

The firm works alongside railways and transportation companies such as Via Rail and Go Transit and Ontario Northland, which could also be affected by a strike.

Bob Fitzgerald, national president of CAW, said the immediate impact of a strike would affect construction in and around Union Station, but he also said it could create problems for travellers.

However, Via Rail Canada said in a statement yesterday that it expects to operate normally through Union Station “in the unlikely event of a strike” by TTR employees.
