As we wish Andy Byford well as he leaves the TTC and moves into his new role — let us reaffirm that the City of Toronto must hire a replacement who respects workers’ rights and champions the expansion of much-needed public transit in Toronto. Regardless of who occupies the CEO chair at the TTC, we will continue to fight for transit workers, specifically protecting jobs, bringing an end to privatization, cleaning up the dirty air in the subway system and keeping members safe.
