Sisters and Brothers,

We received the unfortunate news today that an ATU Local 113 member, a Wheel-Trans Operator from Lakeshore Division, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

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

The member’s last shift was on Thursday, May 14, from 6:20 a.m. to 7:40 p.m. The member received a test on Thursday, May 21, and received a positive test result on Friday, May 22.

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

This diagnosis marks the 43rd 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 53.

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
