ATU Canada and ATU 113 to Hold Press Conference to Address National Crisis in Driver Assaults


What: ATU Canada and ATU 113 is holding a press conference this Wednesday to address the lack of action in regard to the national crisis of transit operator assaults. The transit union is calling on all three levels of government to come to the table to work with them on a National Framework to tackle assaults as well as things like: implementations of reporting and tracking systems to identify the real number of assaults, de-escalation training, increased vigilance, recognition from employers that an assault is a critical injury and the court system to utilize Bill S-221 as a deterrent.

The calls come after two operators were stabbed in just one week earlier this month.



John Di Nino, President of ATU Canada

Marvin Alfred, President of ATU local 113

When: Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022, at 10:00 AM EST
