Toronto’s Transit Union Statement on the Toronto Municipal Election Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (October 22, 2018) – Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 113 President Frank Grimaldi released the following statement on the Toronto municipal election results:

“Toronto’s public transit workers congratulate all those who were elected to city council. With Mayor John Tory’s re-election, ATU Local 113 renews our call for the mayor and all city councillors to stand-up and defend our public transit system. With the threat of Queen’s Park uploading the TTC Subway from Torontonians, our city needs a strong council that will fight to keep public transit in Toronto’s hands. The 11,000 transit workers who move Toronto expect city council to continue its support for a public transit system while improving and expanding service for riders.”
