Good afternoon Presidents,
At ATU Canada, we are committed to keeping members informed of our successes and challenges in the transit industry. As such, we film weekly video messages that are uploaded to our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
Our most recent video is lengthier than most, but it addresses a number of ongoing initiatives by locals and the national office, including: bargaining, the Alberta election, operator safety, Greyhound, LRTs, Subway upload, amalgamation in Niagara Region, Cannabis legislature, etc.
It is important that we increase our viewership of these videos, as they serve as a meaningful way to engage members in political action, which we need to build power in the union.
We ask that you share the video on your local and personal Facebook pages.
In an email addressed to all local presidents (dated February 27) I requested your input regarding the top five issues that your local is facing. A number of you have not yet responded. Please do so; our staff will be calling you next week with reminders.
JOHN DI NINO
ATU CANADA PRESIDENT
