The majority of private firms which operate transit worldwide and will be part of the consortiums bidding for the rights to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the B-Line are already like, the operator I mentioned before here on this site, Keolis, heavily unionized already! Most of the large international operators whom generally bid on these contracts not only already heavily unionized but have had to deal with unions in the international transit arena for decades. They are open to unions, don't mind unionization of non-union transit operations. Canada and North America in general are relative new comers to this type of transit operation, where companies run transit services for a government body. This is extremely common in the rest of the world for the last 2-3 decades, just not here in North America! It's not a anti-union take over of transit!
