Statement from TTC CEO Rick Leary on this afternoon's employee assault
This afternoon one of our operators was assaulted while on duty. I have spent the afternoon at the hospital along with ATU Local 113 President Marvin Alfred and had the opportunity to speak with the employee and his family.
Safety is the TTC’s top priority. The safety of our employees and the safety of our customers is the most important thing to me. We believe that everyone should be able to do their job without fear of violence and we are working closely with Toronto Police Services who continue to investigate this incident.
We wish our colleague a fast and full recovery. Our thoughts are with him and his family during this time.
