National Day of Mourning 2023

Joint message from TTC CEO Rick Leary and Union Presidents

Today, Friday, April 28, is National Day of Mourning. All across the Toronto Transit Commission, flags will be lowered to half-staff as a tribute to those in our workforce who have perished or suffered serious injury or illness in the workplace. This is a day, also, when employees are encouraged to take a moment to reflect on the importance of safety at the TTC.

TTC CEO Rick Leary and Union Presidents – Marvin Alfred, ATU Local 113; Gaetano Franco, CUPE Local 2; Chris Morton, CUPE Local 470; Dariusz Nowotny, CUPE Local 5089; and Tim Sullivan, IAMAW Lodge 235 – released a joint message of reflection to all employees:

“Safety is the cornerstone of everything we do at the TTC and a core value for the organization. Operating, maintaining and protecting, on a 24/7 basis, a system that carries the third largest ridership in North America requires a dedicated, committed and safety-focused workforce. Above all else, TTC employees are committed to protecting the safety and health of their co-workers, their customers and the communities in which we operate.
