REPORT: TTC pays millions more in OT
Absenteeism, Work gapping labelled in Auditor report
1 0

The city Auditor General is out with a new audit report on the TTC, and it shows the Red Rocket is paying out a whole lot of OT.

The report suggests the TTC paid $11 million more in 2013 from 2012 which works out to a 17% increase.

TTC CEO Andy Byford says there are several reasons for it, including higher wages, extreme cold weather, absenteeism, and work gapping.

Work gapping accounted for $8.5 Million, which happened because the TTC intentionally left vacated positions open during a transition to contracting out service and cleaning jobs.

Byford says that won't happen again.

As far as absences, the report points out that the number was lower than in 2012, but still higher than the TTC budgeted for.
