Sisters and Brothers,

We received unfortunate news today from one of our ATU Local 113 members, a TTC bus operator from the Mount Dennis garage. Our member, who spoke today with his shop steward and board member, is in the hospital after testing positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our thoughts are with the member and we wish him a full and speedy recovery.

The member hasn’t been on the job since Saturday, March 14.

The case is still under investigation. We’ll continue our work to ensure the TTC and Toronto Public Health respond appropriately to protect members at Mount Dennis and across the system. We’ll keep you updated.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your shop steward or board member.

As we continue to serve Toronto during this challenging time, please stay home if you feel unwell. Medical notes are not required up to and including Saturday, April 4 (with further extensions pending).

Again, our thoughts are with our member and we’re all hoping to see him healthy again soon.

In solidarity,

Carlos Santos
President, ATU Local 113
