Toronto Crossing Guards are in bargaining to negotiate their first collective agreement to improve crucial, life-saving services that keep communities safe. They are woefully underpaid, don’t have access to paid sick days, and are precariously employed even though they put their life on the line every day at Toronto’s busiest intersections where accidents and “near misses” are sharply on the rise.

School crossing guards deserve a strong collective agreement that enshrines vital health and safety provisions and improves working conditions for this predominantly female workforce.

CUPE represents more than 300 newly unionized school crossing guards in Toronto at ASP Security Services who keep kids and our community safe.

The City of Toronto currently contracts out crossing guard services to two security companies. CUPE firmly holds that vital services like school crossing guards need a stable, fairly treated workforce.
