TTC Strike Declared 'Unlawful' by Labour Board

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 29, 2006) - Early this morning the Ontario Labour Relations Board declared the TTC strike by Amalgamated Union Local 113 as "unlawful". The union officials were ordered to "cease and desist from procuring, supporting or encouraging an unlawful strike".

It is now the responsibility of ATU Local 113 President, Bob Kinnear, and his union executive to tell the employees to return to work. The Collective Agreement is very clear in stating that "the Union will take all means to have the defaulting employees return to work as usual."
