Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 2008 TTC strike was as a legal strike action by Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) unionized employees that began on April 26, 2008 at 12:01 a.m. EDT. All bus, streetcar and subway in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, was suspended leaving thousands of people stranded across the city. Although the strike action was legal the Amalgamated Transit Union local 113 did not provide 48-hour notice of the service withdrawal as they had previously promised they would do. Instead, the ATU only provided 90 minutes' notice before the service withdrawal. Bob Kinnear president of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 113 claimed that the lack of an advance notice was necessary to protect the his TTC employees from "angry and irrational members of the public."show more
