Sad Day for Local 113

ATU Canada is shocked and deeply troubled by the court’s decision yesterday to reinstate Bob Kinnear.

The fact of the matter is that Mr. Kinnear’s actions were in gross violation of the ATU International Constitution and his own Local’s Bylaws. It is shameful that his actions and collusion with UNIFOR were for his own personal gain and there was absolutely no consideration for the 10,500 members that make up ATU Local 113.

It is with great pride that ATU Canada stands behind the Executive Board of Local 113 with their numerous motions against Mr. Kinnear. The first being a motion of “No Confidence” in the leadership of Bob Kinnear.

We are One ATU and the Transit Union of choice in North America simply because no one knows transit like we do. Period.
