ATU Local 107 commemorated the 110th Anniversary of the 1906 HSR Transit Strike while uniting against the privatization of Ontario’s Hydro and the contracting out of key transit lines through Metrolinx. The Rally, which was held in front of Hamilton City Hall, on Thursday, November 24, 2016, brought together over 300 concerned citizens, transit riders, other ATU, CUPE and other union locals.
I would like to thank our Social Committee and all the volunteers for their time and all of their hard work at making our ATU 1573 picnic a huge success. It was great to see our members and their families out enjoying the good food and awesome weather.
I also want thank Alyssa from Union Strategies for coming out and taking photos of our event and creating memories.
