Out of left field

The TTC's union rejected the proposed contract this evening, but things are quickly spiraling out of control. According to media reports, members of the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 113, will be on strike as of 12:00 midnight this evening.

So how did we get here? Well, there is no reasonable way you could argue that this is the city's fault for not offering an acceptable agreement. Blame for this situation falls squarely on the union leadership for being only 35% in touch with their membership. 

Mr. Kinnear, I am not a member of your Union but I think you need to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if you have the ability to continue to lead ATU local 113.

As an aside:

Word on the street was that this deal was good for drivers but bad for mechanics. With drivers being the majority of the Union membership, I think what we are seeing is proof that people are unwilling to inconvenience others for their own personal gain. We saw the same thing with the U-Pass at U of T Scarborough.
