ATU Local 113 applauds Mayor Chow’s decision to increase jobs for our union.

This morning, Mayor Chow and TTC’s Chair Councillor Jamaal Myers announced an increase in jobs at the TTC. ATU Local 113 is pleased to see the addition of customer service agents (CSA) at subway stations. 

Having a stronger employee presence ensures a higher quality of service and deters issues related to violence and safety breaches.  

We would have also liked to see the TTC provide additional support for workers out on the routes that bring customers to the subway system, such as our buses and streetcars. The return of street support is needed more now than ever, especially with the recent events in violence. 

We are encouraged by this announcement and will work with the Mayor and the TTC to continue on this path of progress.
