The delegation includes bus representatives involved in the dispute who want to meet with the Ontario Public Sector Employees Union (OPSEU) and request its assistance in getting a fair resolution to the dispute.
More than 1,300 Unite members at the bus company have been striking for four weeks for better pay and conditions.
The OPSEU pension fund, run by the OPTrust, owns a controlling stake in one parent company of Go North East and a majority stake in another.
If OPSEU were swayed by the delegation it could play a large role in resolving the issue.
Sharon Graham, Unite general secretary, said: “Unite will do whatever it takes to secure pay justice for our members at Go North East and that includes crossing continents to lobby the key financial players in the company.
“Unite will continue to step up this campaign until the dispute is resolved and these workers receive a fair pay rise.”
Unite believe that the dispute could be resolved for less than a quarter of the CEO’s annual pay packet, or less than one per cent of the group’s £50 million in profits.
Suzanne Reid, Unite’s regional coordinating officer, added: “Unite’s leverage campaign has already taken us from Tyneside to Toronto in the fight for fair pay and we won’t stop until Go North East acknowledge our members’ claim.”
Ben Maxfield, business director for Go North East, has said previously : “The public are sick and tired of this strike, which has left people unable to get to work, to school, to hospital appointments or simply to go for a day out.

“People cannot understand why Unite would call an all-out stoppage over a 10.3% pay rise which would make its members the highest paid bus drivers in the North East.
“It is high time for the union to get back to the table and to hold constructive discussions, rather than shifting the goalposts, staging walkouts and playing havoc with bus passengers’ everyday lives.”
Go North East have been contacted for more information.
