Sisters and Brothers,

ATU Local 113 has unfortunately learned that another member, a bus operator from Eglinton Division has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) today.

The member’s last day of work was on Friday, April 10 where they stayed at Eglinton Division from 7:55 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Later that night, they started showing symptoms and took the test on Monday, April 13. The member received their positive test results on Wednesday, April 15.

All ATU Local 113 Sisters and Brothers wish the member a speedy recovery while they self-isolate. This diagnosis marks the 15th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Two TTC staff have also tested positive.

Given the test results came today, the TTC and Toronto Public Health investigation is ongoing. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your shop steward or board member for more information.

Please practice social distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell. As a reminder, medical notes for sick leave have been suspended until further notice.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
