The ATU: Representing Illinois Transit Workers

The Amalgamated Transit Union is the biggest union representing transit workers in the U.S. and Canada. The union helps members organize local chapters, represents them in disputes with management, and assists them in creating and enforcing collective bargaining contracts.

There are more than 190,000 ATU members in the U.S. and Canada. The ATU represents a wide variety of transit workers, including:

  • Baggage handlers
  • Bus drivers
  • Ferryboat operators
  • Mechanics and other maintenance workers
  • Municipal employees
  • Rail and street car operators
  • Subway and rail conductors
  • Transit clerks

ATU members work in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and nine Canadian provinces. The ATU actively promotes mass transit and represents the interests of its members at the local, state, and federal level.

How GWC Helps ATU Union Members

Transit workers help efficiently and safely transport millions of Illinois residents every day. Chicago is one of the busiest transportation hubs in the country and boasts a sizable transportation workforce.

Although the vast majority of Illinois public transit trips are safe, transportation workers are still injured in workplace incidents every day. When ATU members are injured on the job, they may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. The legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers is experienced in representing injured transportation members with workers’ compensation insurers and helping them receive the benefits to which they are entitled.

Our attorneys handle ATU workers’ compensation cases that involve workplace injuries such as traffic accidents, slip-and-falls, and job-related illnesses.

We believe that no case is too big or too small and are dedicated to treating all of our clients with the utmost respect and attention.
