Earlier today, in another historic win for workers the Ontario Court of Appeal, in a majority decision, affirmed that the TTC workers’ right to strike is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The Local 113’s Bargaining Committee continues to negotiate with the employer; however, we remain far apart on our issues of job security, wages and benefits.  Following the No Board Report issued by the Ministry of Labour, Local 113 will be in a legal strike position as of June 7, 2024.

The Executive Board has considered the decision carefully, and we are announcing that we have set our Strike Date for Friday, June 7, 2024.  

The time is now for a fair contract that values the work of transit workers, provides job security and fair wages, and ensure a TTC that is safe and reliable for riders and workers.
