As part of this general empowerment, the by-law authorizes municipalities to take a series of specific measures that replace laws, regulations, ordinances, directives, agreements or agreements, including a collective agreement. This means that municipalities can take such measures without complying with a collective agreement, including its provisions on dismissal, seniority/service or emergency measures. With the new collective agreement, ATU Local 113 is asking the new Toronto City Council and TTC to join us in addressing the provincial government`s threat to split the TTC by taking its subway and putting it on the overtaking path to privatization, fare increases and reduced passenger service. I am writing to the Council in response to the regulation adopted last night on collective bargaining for transit workers. I am shocked and sad that your government has taken this step without warning, and I invite you to reconsider this issue. « Toronto`s hard-working transit workers welcome the new collective agreement that recognizes our important role in the communities we serve with fair wages and benefits. From the beginning of the process, ATU Local 113 came to the table in good faith to negotiate a deal and, despite the TTC`s efforts to reduce, reduce and suspend the talks, the arbitrator agreed that the contract follows years of negotiated solutions and is not based on drastic and unfair concessions. The arbitrator also rejected the TTC`s assertion that City of Toronto workers were an appropriate comparison with our 11,000 qualified people in transit and accepted that comparisons with Metrolinx, Mississauga MiWay and Brampton Transit were more appropriate. Let us be clear, whatever the outcome, interest rate arbitration does not replace the charter`s fundamental right to free collective bargaining denied at ATU Local 113 with the removal of the right to strike by previous governments. Your injunction to Council – By-law No.

157/20 – states that the City of Toronto can ignore our freely negotiated collective agreement and force workers to change jobs and working hours, withdraw seniority rights and even assign work to private contractors and volunteers, all at the request of the employer and despite our collective agreement negotiated between them. We recognize that this is a global crisis that every community in the province has reached. Last month, along with health care and grocery workers, it was the members of Local 113 who took up our city`s challenge and spent the last month risking their health and the health of their families and doing whatever is necessary to keep Toronto operational despite this crisis. . . .
