An important message from our friends at the Winnipeg Labour Council.  The EPC voted unanimously to continue to privatize City garbage collection services regardless of public opinion.  On top of this, the rushed decision could potentially add millions to the contracts and the city would need to absorb the impact.

"The city issued its search for new contractors before the Trudeau government's carbon-tax announcement.  Mayor Bowman said he sees no reason to delay a council vote on the GFL and Miller contracts in order to explore other forms of vehicles." Read more >>>

We're glad to share this piece of Winnipeg Transit history.

Brian K. Darragh is a retired member of ATU 1505.  He was employed when the last Winnipeg streetcar went out of service.  Brian also was an original member of ATU Local 1505 when it was established in 1957.  And also was a member of the previous Union called OBU(One Big Union), which dated back to the General Strike in 1919.

Demonstration by Transit Riders for Operators

ATU thanks Jacqui and Rob for organizing, and reaching out to our Operators.  As well as everyone that came to offer their support or just came by to ask questions!



Simple things like this can improve someone's day immensely and that only gets passed on.  Operator's were commenting on how nice of a gesture it was.  The more everyone acknowledges the need for a better Public Transit system.  The better off the entire community will be.

ATU has supported the United Way over the years.  Since the beginning of 2014.  ATU 1505 has been getting more involved with the community.  And it is good to see efforts are noticed!

CUPE Local 3085 and 2180 needed some help to be recognized.  The challenges they face are very familiar, yet very specific (to adequately fund assisted community living).  ATU Local 1505 was happy to assist them in their rally on July29th.

ATU 1505 participated along side fellow Unions on August 6th.  In recognition of equality for all workers in the workforce. 

On July 29, CUPE Local 3085 (Community Living Selkirk) took to the streets of Winnipeg, calling on the provincial government to adequately fund assisted community living, so workers can achieve a fair, living wage!
