ATU Local 1505 Winnipeg

Transit Assaults

The issue of assaults on Transit Operator's in Canada is a serious one.  We hope to help raise more awareness, and educate the Public that Operator's need to be kept safe.  No one wants to be assaulted in their place of work.  But even after Bill S 221 was passed it continue's to be a concern.
