ATU 615 calls for more safety measures for Saskatoon transit drivers
Negative interactions involving Saskatoon Transit drivers and some passengers have dropped, according to a report from the city.
ATU Local 615 president Darcy Pederson says this can be attributed, in part, to assault barriers that have been installed on some buses.
Yet in this interview with Chris Carr, Pederson says more steps need to be taken to ensure driver safety.
