Sisters and Brothers,

We received 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 today who is recovering at home. I wished them a full and quick recovery on behalf of all ATU Local 113 members.

The member’s last shift was on Monday, May 18. The member was tested on Tuesday, May 19 and received the positive test result on Thursday, May 21.

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

This member’s diagnosis marks the 42nd ATU Local 113 member who has tested positive for COVID-19. Nine 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 51.

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
