ATU Local 113 Bus Operator at Birchmount Division Tests Positive for COVID-19

Sisters and Brothers,

We received unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a bus operator at Birchmount division, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

I spoke to the member who is self isolating at home. On behalf of all ATU Local 113 members, we wish them a quick and full recovery.

The member’s last shift was on Sunday, November 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. They received the positive test result on Monday, November 16.

This case marks the 156th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. A total of 180 employees at the TTC have tested positive for COVID-19.

Please practice physical distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell. If you have been tested and are awaiting your results, please stay home and self-isolate.

In Solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
