Sisters and Brothers,

We received news today that a TTC Subway operator from the Wilson Division has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

I spoke with the member today who is doing well and recovering at home. We all wish them a full and quick recovery.

The member’s last shift was on Tuesday, April 28 from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The member began feeling symptoms and was tested on Thursday, April 30. They received the positive test on Saturday, May 2.

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

This member’s diagnosis marks the 27th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Seven 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 34.

Please practice social 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
