Sisters and Brothers,

We received unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a subway operator from the Danforth Division who drives the SRT out of McCowan Yard, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

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

The member’s last shift was on Tuesday, May 26 from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. The member was tested on Sunday, May 31 and received the positive test result on Wednesday, June 3.

This diagnosis marks the 48th ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Ten 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 58.

Please practice physical distancing as much as possible before, during and after your shifts – and stay home if feel unwell.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
