Members Jump Start Their Union and Reverse Two-Tier

Dear Members,

Our Brothers and Sisters of Saskatoon Local 615 need our help. Saskatoon Transit workers have been without a contract since 2012.
Following a set of meetings on March 7, local 615 decided to scale back uniforms rather than begin a full-blown strike. Pensions continue to be a major point of contention between the union and the City of Saskatoon.

Drivers are encouraging people to contact Saskatoon city councillors via text/e-mail to request that the city settle this important issue.
We stand in Solidarity with ATU Local 615!
