The proposed Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Maintain (DBFOM) contract for the Hamilton LRT is not privatisation. It is the public sector (Metrolinx) contracting a private partner to provide these services over an ~30 year period. The contract will have strict performance controls and termination clauses and at the end of the term the infrastructure and rolling stock would be handed over to Metrolinx in "like new" condition. The workers at each phase are all typically unionised though will not be part of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 107, the union that represents HSR employees. Though not stated explicitly, this is the ATU and Mr. Tuck's primary concern.
