Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral: Transit Edition

February 8th, 2010

spiral torontoFaced with increasing criticism after a spate of pictures and videos showing TTC employees not doing their job, operators at the public transit syndicate have decided to fight back:

This is a group where Operators can give suggestions on how to fight back to the recent photo and video harassment from passengers just looking to make trouble for us.

I work in the semi-real world of a private company with a big union. The previous actions of TTC employees, sleeping on the job, stopping for coffee, going to the bank are all discipline offences. With the exception of the guy who stopped for coffee in the middle of the night and left his passengers unattended, all are minor offences and a verbal or written warning would be sufficient for somebody with an otherwise clean record.

Starting a Facebook page, however, which is dedicated to how much your customers suck, is a fire-able offence. Contributing pictures of the customers sucking is suspend-able (fire-able if the picture was actually taken while you were supposed to be on duty).

    Since I don’t live in Toronto nor subscribe to any of those disgusting social networking sites, I can only offer this suggestion to those who do. Start a facebook page demanding that the transit system be turned over to a private company to operate. The city could still own the equipment, if so desired, but the operational end could be put out for tender every four years.
