Pretty sure OC Transpo normally would've have been something that would have been legislated back to work. IRC the problem was that Ottawa has buses from both Ontario/Quebec running through it so it would have had to been legislated at the Federal level instead of by the Province. Had it been solely Provincial (see Toronto) then there wouldn't have been a strike.
