Montreal transit worker suspended for being rude to English riders

A transit worker in Montreal has received his third suspension in the past six months, after being accused of being rude to riders who spoke English.

A Sun media newspaper in Montreal reports the worker has refused to speak English, but he said he is always courteous to customers regardless of what language they speak. His bosses, however, disagree.

Reports state that in June, the employee told a subway user “we don’t speak English here.”

Montreal’s Transit Authority states that workers are not required to speak English – as per Quebec law – but their rules of conduct insist that employees be respectful and civil toward all transit users.
