Vaccination at Bell Canada

The question of vaccination at Bell Canada and its various subsidiaries has been brought up via multiple channels in the past days.

Naturally, Unifor is favourable to the announcement of Bell to allow our workers to obtain time during work hours to receive a vaccination for Covid-19.

One common issue that has been raised relates to the demonstration of proof of vaccination.  The matter has been reviewed with our legal counsel and we recommend sharing the following comments with our various local leaders:

Paid sick days save lives. Public health officers and community & labour organizations in provinces across Canada are calling for urgent action to legislate paid sick days.

Unifor invites you to take part in a Phone Zap for Paid Sick Days!

Monday, March 1 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.

During this short workshop, we will look at how legislated paid sick days are essential to end the COVID-19 pandemic so workers don't have to go to work when they are sick.

Dear members,

Thank you for keeping Canada connected. Our country is facing a monumental crisis. 

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to infect Canadians and people around the world. Our country has moved quickly to take steps toward social distancing, a phrase many of us had never considered a month ago, but we can all easily define now. 

Last week saw hundreds of thousands of workers forced off the job as waves of orders moved through provinces to end public gatherings, and to close all but essential services.
