Sisters and Brothers,

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

The latest member who tested positive for COVID-19 is a coach technician at the Queensway Garage. I spoke with the member today who is recovering at home and doing well. The member’s last shift was on Friday, April 10 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The member started showing symptoms during their shift on Friday, April 10 and was tested on Monday, April 13. They received the positive test for COVID-19 on Tuesday, April 14.

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 13th 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
