    Is this a recruitment problem, a retention problem or a combination of both? Is this an Ottawa issue or are other municipalities experiencing the same thing?

    I understand that one of the issues is that new hires, once trained and on the job for a short time, are leaving in higher-than-usual numbers. What does it cost to train drivers only to have them leave in the first year of employment? Are they being given a realistic idea up front of what the actual work will be like including shift work, long hours, early starts and late finishes?

    They’ve had a fairly intense hiring campaign going on for a while. Why isn’t it working? Are they even looking into this or just giving a shrug of the shoulder and saying they have no drivers?

    Finally, does this coincide with Mme Amilcar’s tenure or is it an ongoing phenomenon?
