President’s Message

Brothers and Sisters,

As your new President, I want to take a moment to reach out to every ATU Member in Canada with a few brief sentiments.

First and foremost, as I step into my role as President of ATU Canada I look forward to working with each and every one of you. It is an incredible honour for me to lead and serve this great union of ours, and to be the first to lead its redefined national organization.

This is a critical time for unions as our members face attacks from the government, our employers and the passengers we carry. We must equip ourselves with the necessary tools to face conflict and successfully navigate the unrelenting pressures. Over the next serval months, ATU Canada will be conducting training courses and seminars across the country on a variety of topics to help better serve our members and the labour movement. By providing resources, dedication and perseverance, together we will better the lives of our members.

As we start a new phase of our journey together, ATU Canada will be there to guide and support you. This new chapter begins with clarity of purpose and sense of mission that will guide this union to delivering excellence. I remain yours in solidarity,

Paul Thorp
Amalgamated Transit Union Canada
(ATU Canada)
