Sisters and Brothers,

We received news today that a TTC bus operator from the Malvern Division has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The member’s last shift was on Saturday, April 25 from 2:45 pm to 10:30 pm while running the Finch Express. The member was tested on Monday, April 27 and received the positive test on Wednesday, April 29.

I spoke with the member today who is recovering at home. We all wish them a full and quick recovery.

Please contact your shop steward or board member for more information.

This member’s diagnosis marks the 26th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Seven TTC employees who are not ATU Local 113 members have also tested positive, bringing the total number of TTC employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 to 33.

Please practice social distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
