TTC employees are fed up with what they have called harassment by transit users.
Over the weekend they vented their frustrations on the Internet and created a Facebook group called: “Toronto Transit Operators Against Public Harassment.”
It quickly filled up with pictures of transit riders in the wrong – like some who were caught putting their feet up on the seats.
And on Sunday night a post was put up that read: “Reminder to work-to-rule on Monday.”
However, by Monday’s morning rush it was evident no labour disruption was going to happen.
Still it remains clear TTC employees are frustrated with the public, management and the media.
It all started after pictures of a fare collector caught sleeping on the job in his booth at McCowan station went public, which resulted in much scrutiny of TTC employees.
This employee told Global News now “there’s people coming around – following us around with cameras and stuff like that – you know what they’re trying to do.”
TTC employees also got a scolding over the weekend from general manager Gary Webster.
Webster said, in a memo released over the weekend, “Employees need to be held accountable for their poor performance and that this public transit agency belongs to the very people we serve.”
The union representing TTC employees is slated to hold a news conference on Tuesday.
