TORONTO, ONTARIO – (November 15, 2018) – Frank Grimaldi, President of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 113, released the following statement regarding the 2018 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review:

“Toronto’s public transit workers renew our calls for all Torontonians to oppose Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s plan to break apart the TTC through its so-called subway upload. In reality, the province’s scheme will do nothing more than harm the TTC by shattering our integrated system, taking away local democratic control and paving the way for higher fares and privatized service, similar to what we see with Metrolinx and GO Transit. Premier Ford, hands off our subways! The TTC belongs to Toronto.”
