Sisters and Brothers,

After ATU Local 113 fought for months to get all workers back on the job, the TTC today announced that 179 of our ATU Local 113 members that were laid off in the spring will be returning to work. This means that by the first week of November, all remaining laid off workers will be helping move Toronto again. This is great news for our members, the TTC and the people of Toronto.

ATU Local 113 has been the leading voice in this fight and has never stopped advocating for the return of all 450 workers since the TTC announced layoffs in April. Since the announcement of layoffs, our members, Executive Board and transit allies have been urging the TTC to restore full service to protect public health and prevent overcrowding on a growing number of routes. Today, the TTC has met our demands and finally done the right thing.

In Solidarity,
President Carlos Santos and your Executive Board
