Update on TTC Bargaining with CUPE Local 2

This weekend, teams from the TTC and CUPE Local 2 will continue bargaining to reach a new collective agreement in order to avoid job action and potential service disruptions. Local 2 has set a deadline of 12:01 a.m. Monday (Sunday midnight) to reach a deal.

The following is a bargaining update statement from TTC CEO Rick Leary:

“Talks have been productive and professional and I’m pleased that we are still at the table.

CUPE Local 2 represents about 650 electrical skilled trades workers who keep our subway and streetcar systems running safely and reliably.

While I remain optimistic we can reach an agreement at the table that prevents a strike, we also need to be honest and let our employees know there could be job action next week that impacts their work. In addition, we need to let our customers know that there could be impacts to their TTC trips.

Labour negotiations are not typically easy or straightforward, and this is the first time in 13 years TTC employees have had the ability to strike.

However, I believe the mandate our Board has approved and our offers within that mandate are fair to the workers and affordable for the TTC and we will continue to negotiate in good faith.

In the unlikely event a deal cannot be reached and job action commences, we will let our employees and customers know what the impacts are as soon as possible.

Public updates will be posted at www.ttc.ca/LabourDisruption as well as through @TTCNotices and @TTCHelps on X. We will also make sure that there will be direct communication with employees.

We understand the importance of the TTC for the millions of customers who rely on us every week and we will do everything we can to avoid - and if necessary, to minimize - service disruptions.”
