The union representing 12,000 TTC workers has requested a no-board report from the Ministry of Labour, putting them one step closer to a strike.

In a release, the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 113 said no progress has been made on issues such as job security, wages and benefits.

The union said it has been working with a conciliator and TTC management since one was appointed by the ministry on April 15.

“We have been at the bargaining table since early February,” Marvin Alfred, president of ATU Local 113, stated in a release. “We were hoping to reach a fair agreement with the employer. The request for a no-board report is our final step towards our union’s ability to legally strike.”

A legal strike could begin 17 days after a no-board report has been issued.

ATU Local 113 said its collective agreement expired on March 31, 2024.

In April, the 12,000 workers who operate and maintain the TTC voted “overwhelmingly” in favour of a strike mandate.

If no agreement is reached, it will be the first time in 13 years that unionized TTC workers can legally strike after a court ruling struck down Ontario’s designation of the TTC as an essential service.

Last week, CUPE Local 2, which represents more than 650 electrical and trades workers, reached a tentative agreement with the TTC to avoid a labour dispute.

The latest update comes as the TTC board meets on Thursday to discuss various issues including the 12-hour subway service shutdown on a portion of Line 2 on Monday following a hydraulic spill.
