Dear City and Parks Members:
At this time the union has not been provided the final policy regarding mandatory vaccination. Once it is reviewed we will be in a better position to respond.
The union has a responsibility to uphold the collective agreement rights of all members. Should any of our members suffer an adverse effect on their employment (placed on leave without pay, suspended, etc.) the union may be in a position to file a grievance on behalf of that member. Any member who is experiencing an adverse effect on their employment status should contact a shop steward to consider the possibility of filing an individual grievance.
Again, more information will be provided once the union has received and reviewed the policy.
To contact a shop steward please call the CUPE Local 15 office at 604-879-4671 and ask for the City/Parks Shop Steward line to leave a message for the shop steward on duty. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and your email will be forwarded to the shop steward on duty so they can assist you.
