Sisters and Brothers,

A TTC Subway operator from the Danforth Division has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The member’s last shift was on Thursday, April 9 – they worked a split shift from 6:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. The member began feeling symptoms on Saturday, April 11 and received the positive test result on Thursday, April 16.

I’ve spoken to the member who is recovering. We wish them a full recovery.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your shop steward or board member for more information.

This member’s diagnosis marks the 16th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Two TTC staff have also tested positive.

Please practice social distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if you feel unwell. As a reminder, medical notes for sick leave have been suspended until further notice.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
