CA, 26 Jan 2023
Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) president John Di Nino is expected to speak to the media on Wednesday and call for immediate action on increasing violence against transit workers.

TTC CEO Rick Leary said several discussions are underway following a string of recent high-profile assaults on employees that include looking at uniform visibility and more security.

The latest attack happened on Wednesday morning where Toronto Police say a suspect has been arrested after two TTC employees were allegedly chased with a syringe in the city’s downtown core.

The incident comes after a rash of attacks on TTC employees recently. Up to 15 youths allegedly attacked two uniformed TTC employees on their way to work by bus Monday afternoon.
