International Women’s Day Toronto: Rally and March

On Saturday, March 9th, members of ATU Local 113 took part in the
International Women’s Day Toronto Rally and March.

Thousands of women and allies marched from the University of Toronto to Ryerson University for the annual event.

On behalf of our Women’s Committee, Sister Tracey Brown shared the message below:

“I would like to acknowledge and thank all of the Sisters and Brothers who took time over the weekend to come out and support the event. Having both current and retired members (John Brown and Eleanor McKnight) coming together with other unions to march in union solidarity was wonderful to see. A special thanks to Vice President Rick Fox, Assistant Business Agent Frank Malta, Executive Board Members Marvin Alfred, Claudio Cappadocia, Aleem Tharani, Pino D’Armiento, Jason DaSilva, and Tony Meglio for getting involved!

I would also like to thank Shop Steward Rico Signore, my fellow By-Law Committee Member Mike D’Agostino, Health and Safety Liaison Andrew Falotico and ATU Canada President John DiNino. Your support does not go unnoticed.

The turnout grows every year and I’m hoping that next year’s IWD event will have an even greater attendance and impact.

In Solidarity,

Tracey Brown, Women’s Committee”
