Six TTC employees and ex-employees charged with theft, fraud

Six TTC employees and ex-employees charged with theft, fraud | Toronto Star: “It is alleged that over the course of several years, these individuals stole, defrauded and attempted to circumvent TTC purchasing policies and authorities, harming our collective reputation and the public’s trust,” CEO Andy Byford wrote to the system’s 13,000 employees on Wednesday.
He announced mandatory ethics training for all supervisory and management staff, and a forensic audit of the system’s contract protocols, signing authority and procurement practices.
The scandal is the second in two years at the TTC. In January 2013, eight transit enforcement officers were fired and five of them arrested and charged in a fraudulent ticketing scam. The officers were allegedly writing tickets to people with no fixed address to cover up the fact they weren’t working when they were supposed to be.
Councillor Maria Augimeri, TTC chair, said she trusts that Byford “is putting in place a solid list of controls which will help the organization strengthen its policies and practices with regard to ethics in the workplace.”
“The vast majority of the TTC’s employees are hard-working, conscientious, women and men who are extremely proud of the work they do for our public service,” she said.
