Sisters and Brothers,

With the recent increase of COVID-19 cases affecting members and others across our city and province, ATU Local 113 would like to address members’ concerns. Your safety and well-being is always our top priority.

From the beginning of the pandemic, ATU Local 113 fought hard to secure protections for members. As the pandemic wears on, we’ll continue advocating on your behalf and demanding that the TTC do everything it can to protect you.

In order to hold the TTC responsible for its obligations, we encourage members to file a numbered occurrence report at their workplace if they ever see something that violates proper health and safety practices. This applies to all divisions and for maintenance staff on shop floors.

ATU Local 113 has also set up a new web page that lists and tracks all member coronavirus cases. ATU Local 113 updates this page as soon as we are informed of a member testing positive for COVID-19.

With the development of COVID-19 vaccines showing promising results, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Until then, please physical distance as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell.

We will come out of this crisis more united and stronger than ever.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
