TORONTO, Ont. — The OTA Allied Trades Division is set to become an annual sponsor of the OTA Road Knights Team. The Road Knights are composed of a group of up to a dozen Ontario professional truck drivers who travel the province speaking to community groups, safety organizations, schools, car clubs, etc., in order to enhance public understanding of how to safely share the road with a truck, while also advocating the professionalism of truck drivers, the critical role played by the industry and the careers that the industry offers.
“The role of the allied trades is to support the work of the association,” said Gord Box, chairman of the OTA Allied Trades Division. “The OTA Road Knights are the best possible ambassadors for our industry so it makes sense that we help ensure the program remains strong.”
Details on the amount of the sponsorship were not publicly disclosed, but OTA president, David Bradley, says “the generous support of the allied trades division will go towards media and public speaking training and uniforms for the team members as well as administration of the program. This will really help make sure the program remains strong.”
