Sisters and Brothers,

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

The member has been recovering in the hospital for the past two nights and seems to be doing much better. On behalf of all ATU Local 113 members, we wish them a quick and full recovery.

The member’s last shift was on Wednesday, November 4 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. They received the positive test result on Tuesday, November 10.

This case marks the 150th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. A total of 172 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
