Covid Vaccine & Testing Information
Today, SaskEnergy & SaskPower sent out information to employees regarding their respective company stances on the above noted topic.
Local 649 has been provided with the same information as our membership and we will have continuing discussions around the requirements that the companies are implementing.
We know that as members and individuals, this is a very concerning and emotional topic and situation. It will always be our intent and responsibility to ensure that the rights and privileges of our members are not crossed however it is also our duty to recognize that the safety of our membership is of equal if not greater concern.
We await the Government of Saskatchewan emergency changes to their legislation to see how this will impact the companies and their final draft policies.
Rest assured that this is a topic of great concern to the Local as we know it impacts all of us. We will continue to offer reasonable ideas to the companies to adhere to the government health orders all the while trying to balance the rights and safety of our members.
We appreciate the concern that all members have, what the local asks is that we all have respectable discussion about this and refrain from social media posts (as the employers would consider this a violation of code of conduct) if they have any reference to your employer.
Local 649 is working as best we can to have the concerns that members have brought forward answered (they may not be the answers we want) and to make this process work.
