Sisters and Brothers,

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

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

The member’s last shift was on Sunday, May 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The member received the positive test result on Friday, May 22.

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

This diagnosis marks the 44th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Ten 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 54.

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

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos

President, ATU Local 113
