Statement by the TTC

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 17, 2008) - The Toronto Transit Commission remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement with its three unions: a settlement that is fair for its employees and affordable for the people of Toronto. The TTC and its unions are not yet in agreement on how to achieve that goal. The TTC's bargaining team, however, is working hard to reach a fair deal, and will continue to do so.

The Toronto Transit Commission is mindful of the public's frustration and uncertainty about a service disruption; its employees, however, deserve nothing less than to continue to be treated with dignity and respect.

The Toronto Transit Commission will not comment on the threat of job action at this time. Its focus remains on reaching a fair, negotiated settlement.

NOTE: TTC Chair Adam Giambrone will be available to the media at 1:30 p.m. in the Mayor's Office, 2nd floor, Toronto City Hall.
