Sisters and Brothers,

ATU Local 113 has unfortunately learned that another member has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) today.

The member who tested positive for COVID-19 is a subway operator from Wilson Division. The member’s last shift was on Saturday, April 4 from 5:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  They were tested on Monday, April 13 and received their positive test results on Wednesday, April 15.

I spoke with the member today who is recovering at home and doing well. All ATU Local 113 Sisters and Brothers wish the member a speedy recovery while they self-isolate.

Given the diagnosis came today, the TTC and Toronto Public Health investigation is ongoing. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your shop steward or board member for more information.

This member’s diagnosis marks the 14th 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
