When he started as a TTC subway cleaner in 1986, John Di Nino could have never anticipated that he would one day be elected to the position of ATU Canada President.

In his early days on the job, John was approached by a union steward. He was explained the role of the union and encouraged to get involved.

John credits his growth in the union to the education that he received along the way. His first training opportunity was in 1988 at the Tommy Douglas centre as a new steward, attending Shop Steward training with fellow ATU sisters and brothers from Local 113. John went on to serve as a Steward for five consecutive 3-year terms.
