Toronto, ON – The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 have successfully reached a “framework agreement” just ahead of the midnight deadline, averting a potential strike that could have disrupted services for millions of daily commuters across the city’s extensive bus, subway, and streetcar network.

Agreement Details Pending
The union, representing the city’s transit workers, announced the preliminary deal, stating that there are still specific terms to finalize to ensure a fair and reasonable contract. The agreement marks progress on critical issues such as job security, protections against outsourcing, and improvements in benefits for both current employees and pensioners.

Union’s Statement
“Our demands have been reasonable,” the union stated. “We asked the TTC for assurance on job security, protections against contracting out our jobs, and improvements in benefits for active members and pensioners. Today we finally saw action on these critical issues.”
