POSTED OCTOBER 29TH 2021
Thank you to all the members who took the time to participate in last evening’s conference call about BC Hydro’s vaccination mandate policy. Unfortunately we could not take all your calls last night. We have attached the full audio recording below.
Labour lawyer Murphy Fries from Koskie Glavin Gordon law firm provided responses to the most commonly asked questions we received to date about the vaccination mandate at BC Hydro. She also spoke about precedent arbitration processes and results that could influence challenges to this new employer policy. The call was then opened up to participants for questions for the remainder of the call.
As indicated during the call, I stressed this the purpose here is to bring as much information as possible to the membership regarding the vaccination mandate in relation to health and safety in your workplaces.
My Assistant Business Managers and I continue to receive any questions you may have, endeavour to provide responses and to represent you and all our membership to the best of our ability. We are doing our best and thank those members who are communicating with us in a respectful and professional manner.
Please continue to watch the website for more information as it is posted on a regular basis.
Listen to the October 28th conference call audio recording here. (Recording will open in a separate browser window and start playing automatically. Run time = 1 hour 27 minutes.)
Please review our FAQ page posted on October 20, 2021.
