The new CTA employee who took down a ‘toxic’ tweet will not be fired

A CTA train driver who took to Twitter to make a personal attack on a former CTA bus driver is not likely to face disciplinary action, according to a report from the Human Resources and Training Commission.

The report by the commission, which is responsible for disciplining employees for social media violations, did not find any reason to fire the employee, who was fired last week after being accused of making false statements to investigators.

Caleb Kincaid, a 21-year-old former bus driver, posted to Twitter that a man had assaulted his wife while he was on the job.

The man said the man had punched him and choked him while he waited at a stoplight on the CTA system in Evanston, Illinois.

The CTA, which had been working with the family to resolve the case, fired Kincafed on Monday after he was identified by a supervisor and a former co-worker as the person who tweeted the accusation.

The family has not spoken to the CBA, but Kincafe said in a statement that he will not seek compensation for his mistreatment.

“I will not receive any compensation for my wrongful termination from the CCTA and I will never speak to anyone again, which has been my mission since I joined the agency in July 2018,” he said.

“At this point, I can only imagine what my wife has been going through and I can’t imagine what she has been through.”

The CBA declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

The commission has jurisdiction over cases involving employees who make false statements on social media and in the workplace.

The commission did not recommend disciplinary action against Kincaaid, who has not publicly commented.
