Dear Local Officers,
I would like to personally thank all of our officers and members that took the time to fill out the assault survey in August. I know that I don’t have to tell you how heartfelt and heartbreaking so many of your comments and stories were. The information will be used to make our case for more prevention and protection against assaults all across Canada and the US.
I am now asking you and your members to fill out a bathroom access online survey. Like many personal issues, bathroom access for transit workers is not a topic some people like to discuss. In fact, many would have you believe that the problem is the individual, you, and not the working conditions, restroom availability and schedules. I know that they are wrong and I am asking you to share your experiences and stories with us so that we can help win basic dignity and respect for all of our members.
Here is the link to the special new online survey on bathroom breaks that we want you to fill out and send to your members to fill out: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BSKXX7L
If you have any questions, please contact my office.
Lawrence J. Hanley
