Sisters and Brothers,

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

I spoke with the member today who is recovering at home. I wish them a full and quick recovery on behalf of all ATU Local 113 members.

The member’s last shift was on Friday, May 15 from approximately 4:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The member was tested on Saturday, May 16 and received a positive test result on Sunday, May 17.

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

This diagnosis marks the 39th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Nine 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 48.

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

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
