We all have a responsibility to keep one another safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. Vaccines work and are the best way to prevent serious illness. We must also ensure other health and safety measures are not forgotten.

ATU Canada will continue to support its members on issues relating to COVID-19, including vaccination mandates, on a case by case basis.

On Sunday afternoon, there was an altercation on one of our buses between two passengers. The passengers at the back of the bus, a man and a woman, got into an altercation. The man stabbed the woman several times. The woman has been taken to hospital in critical condition. 

We have reached out to the member who was driving the bus at the time. They were not threatened or physically hurt, and have told us they are doing okay.  

The City of Winnipeg has made vaccines mandatory for front-line employees, including transit operators. 

 

Human resources will soon contact you with information on how to fulfil the vaccine requirements, how you can submit your proof of vaccine, and information for those with religious or medical exemptions.
