Hamilton Bus Drivers sleeping?

Seen this on chch's website. Apparently hamilton bus drivers are sleeping off, whether it be on their breaks or not.

Spying on public sector workers seems to be some sort of sport now.

As long as they are not sleeping while driving their routes, who cares.

The thing is if its raining or snowing and theres no shelters and someone has a kid and the bus driver is sleeping for 10 minutes that's not acceptable or the fact that they're sleeping infront of their "customers" would you sleep infront of your customers if u worked at a retail store no it's not professional.

I am sure they have schedules to follow.If they don't they can be fired. So complaints about raining, snowing, no shelters, waiting for the bus are irrelevant if the schedule is followed. Of course, the "no shelter" issue is something to be taken up with the bus company and not the driver.

Sorry but if i am on my breaks... i am on my breaks... that mean the customer can yell all they want i am taking my break.

The drivers does not have to work when he is supposed to be taking a break because it's raining outside or it's cold... dress accordingly

I have no issue with that at all then, this happens plenty in offices and plants all over the country.

So many offices allow their employees to fall asleep and be 10-15 minutes late for their shifts, quit talking crap out your mouth.

Meh, Montreal bus drivers do this all the time. It'll be -30 outside with windchill and they'll park their bus one length away from the bus stop and read their newspaper for fifteen minutes.

Which is irrelevant for riders who follow the bus schedule. Of course if you can't maybe mommy should dress you warmer.

If the driver is still meeting the schedule for the route they're driving, it absolutely is acceptable.

I've never seen that and if I did, I'd expect people to be fired for it.

What I see are people who nap for exactly the amount of time for their break. It's crazy, shop foremen who sleep leaned against a wall on a stool for exactly 45 minutes.

I used to go to school with someone who could do this. We would have a long day, followed by an exam, and she would nap in her car for 30 mins before the exam. If I could even managed to get to sleep that quickly a light beep from my cell phone sure as hell wouldn't wake me up.

As to the drivers, as long as they're hitting their scheduled points it's a non-issue. Being early to a scheduled/listed point would actually be more of a problem.

Montreal doesn't have bus schedules. It has bus suggestions. The bus may or may not show up, and if it does, it's +/- 10 minutes or so from the scheduled time.

If you don't get to a bus stop 10 minutes before the scheduled time, there is a risk that you will miss the bus and end up waiting 30-40 minutes for the subsequent one.

@bell.ca

the complaint is about the drivers sleeping off whether or not on their break and being 10 to 15 minutes LATE on their schedule.

Sounds like a perfectly acceptable Quebec solution to mass transit.
