Sisters and Brothers,

We received unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a low floor technician at Leslie Barns, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

I spoke to the member who is self isolating at home. On behalf of all ATU Local 113 members, we wish them a quick and full recovery.

The member’s last shift was on Saturday, November 7 from 11:00 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. The member was tested on Wednesday, November 11 and received a positive test result on Thursday, November 12.

This case marks the 139th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. A total of 161 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
