This Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25, ATU Local 113 is encouraging Sister and Brothers to attend Battle 416, a community basketball tournament and festival that celebrates Toronto’s diverse and vibrant street culture. Battle 416 brings together Toronto’s elite men’s, women’s, and youth teams, in an invitational 5-on-5 outdoor full court experience that will highlight and showcase the immense talent that the city has to offer. ATU Local 113 has two teams competing in the tournament.

Our 12,000 members live in the communities we serve. That’s why ATU Local 113 is sponsoring a booth at the tournament, to share more about why we must protect our public transit systems – and the risks it faces today. Members are encouraged to attend the tournament to support the two teams, but also to volunteer to staff the Local’s table, which will include speaking with attendees. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Deborah Littman at or +1 (647) 570-4217.
