ATU Local 113 is extremely proud of its history of diversity and inclusion. These values are the foundation of solidarity, the idea that we are stronger when we work together.
In the spirit of solidarity and in celebration of Black History Month, ATU Local 113 organized a Black History Month lunch on February 19 at Mount Dennis Bus Garage. All members, regardless of racial, ethnic or cultural background gathered to recognize the contributions of the Black community to ATU Local 113 and the legacies of Black Canadians. Black history is an integral part of Canada that everyone should celebrate.
The annual lunch was organized by Brothers Mark Reed, Paul Wong and others who are passionate about the history of the Black community and their fight for equal rights.
The event also showcased the growing diversity in the workplace. ATU Local 113 is as diverse as Toronto itself. Torontonians see themselves represented in the workers that keep this city moving. That’s why ATU Local 113’s recognition and celebration of diversity will not stop after February, and rather continue all year round.
A huge thank you to Mark Reed, Paul Wong and all those that volunteered their time to make the event such a success.
