The Executive Board of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 has accepted the resignation of Bob Kinnear as President of the local transit union, effective immediately.

Along with the resignation, the Canadian Labour Congress investigation, initiated by Bob Kinnear, into the relationship of ATU Local 113 and ATU International has ended.

The leadership of the union has been restored under the direction of ATU Local 113’s Executive Board.

“With this distraction behind us, we’re now focused on what matters most – representing Toronto’s hardworking transit workers,” said Kevin Morton, Secretary-Treasurer of ATU Local 113. “More united than ever, we’re moving forward to fight the TTC’s plans for alcohol and drug testing and to prepare for next year’s important collective bargaining.”
