Yukon Employees' Union supports leading medical science that suggests vaccines are the most effective way to control the COVID-19 pandemic. We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect yourself and vulnerable persons you may work with.
The Union plays an important role in workplace health and safety and we view this step as a key step in supporting safe workplaces. We will continue to consult with those employers who are mandated by the Yukon Government to implement vaccines.
The Union does not support options that lead to loss of pay, disciplinary action or that fail to consider all reasonable alternatives. The Union recognizes that this is a difficult and stressful time for many and we will continue to try and mitigate impacts on the membership.
