Toronto Mayor David Miller gets provincial support in TTC service dispute
Toronto Mayor David Miller has secured provincial labour ministry support in an effort to bring TTC management and the transit union together to avert job action that could affect TTC service tomorrow.

Following a personal request from Mayor Miller Sunday, Ontario Labour Minister Steve Peters agreed to appoint a senior mediator to begin working with the two sides on Monday in an effort to resolve outstanding issues.

"The TTC is too important a service for too many people to let it be affected by unlawful job action," Mayor Miller said. "I'm pleased the province has listened to my concerns and is willing to help work with us to find a resolution."

Miller stressed that should the union proceed with threatened job action, the TTC is ready to go to the provincial labour board to force an end it.

"We expect the TTC employees to honour their collective agreement, the mayor said.
