Sisters and Brothers,

We received unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a trainee at Greenwood Carhouse, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

I spoke with the member who is recovering at home. On behalf of all ATU Local 113 members, we wish them a quick and full recovery.

The member last worked on Friday, September 4 and received the positive test result on Monday, September 7.

This case marks the 63rd ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Twelve TTC employees who are not ATU Local 113 members have also tested positive, bringing the total number of confirmed cases at the TTC to 75.

Please practice physical 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
