Sisters and Brothers,
We received unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a bus operator from Eglinton Division, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).
I spoke with the member who is recovering at home. On behalf of all ATU Local 113 members, I wished them a quick and speedy recovery.
The member’s last shift was on Friday, July 17 from 12:30 pm to 8:30 pm. They began showing symptoms on Sunday, July 19 and were tested on Monday, July 20. The member received the positive test result on Friday, July 24.
This diagnosis marks the 58th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Twelve 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 70.
Please practice physical distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell.
President, ATU Local 113
