Sisters and Brothers,

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

We wish the member, who is recovering at home, a quick and full recovery.

The member’s last shift was on Friday, April 24. The member developed symptoms on Tuesday, April 28 and tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, May 8.

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

This member’s diagnosis marks the 33rd ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Eight 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 41.

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
President, ATU Local 113
