Training Opportunities for Members

trainingvideos

To better prepare all ATU members for the challenges and battles our locals face, ATU International has launched ATU Online Training Videos available to all ATU members.

These videos teach new strategies on how you can get involved with your local, make your local stronger, and build a more powerful ATU. This is part of our ongoing effort to train as many members as possible.

All the videos are available on the ATU website here. You can watch these videos anywhere and anytime you want.

The first set of videos cover Stewards Training, Grievances, 10 steps for Winning Contracts, Organizing Passengers, ATU COPE, and other issues. In the coming months, we will be adding more videos covering a wide range of topics including how to be an effective union member, bathroom breaks, transit worker assaults, chemical hazards, OSHA and transit workers, and many other topics important to ATU members.

We want your feedback
We would like to get your feedback on these videos and ask that you please take a brief online survey for each video. The link to the survey can be found in the description of each video.
We hope you find these videos useful and encourage you to share them with fellow ATU members.

Hamilton ON – 110th Anniversary of 1906 HSR Strike a Huge Success for Hamilton Transit

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 107 commemorated the 110th Anniversary of the HSR Transit Strike last night, on November 24, 2016, and encouraged Hamilton citizens to join them in a battle against the privatization of Ontario’s hydro and transit.

Hundreds of concerned citizens, and several other ATU and CUPE Locals gathered for the rally, which was held in front of Hamilton City Hall.

Guest Speakers, including Ontario NDP Leader, Andrea Horwath, Bob Kinnear, President of ATU 113 (TTC), Fred Hahn, President of CUPE Ontario, and many others took to the stage in support of keeping Hydro One public. Keeping hydro public will continue to mean both affordable and reliable transit fares.

“Anyone who learns that a vote by Hamilton City Council could ultimately give up local control to bureaucrats at Metrolinx who have contracted out other transit lines becomes upset. LRT or BRT – it must be kept under local control through HSR and answerable to local transit riders through local elections,” says Eric Tuck, President of ATU 107.

The latest version of ATU 107’s commemorative 1906 HSR Strike video is now available. This video provides additional historic information about the working conditions, wage scales and collective agreement details.
