People who operate Winnipeg's transit system for the disabled and others who need help say they are over-worked, underpaid and face harassment on the job.

Transit Plus drivers have sent a petition to the mayor and city council asking for a review of their working conditions.

The petition says most drivers work beyond standard hours and are paid less than minimum wage.

There are also complaints about a lack of oversight when it comes to the private companies awarded Transit Plus contracts. 

Negotiations are underway.
