On Friday October 29 in the midst of the YEU Triennial Convention, YEU President Steve Geick met with Minister John Streicker for an update on the government's progress with their mandatory vaccine policy for Yukon workers. Unfortunately no new information was provided, and the policy is still being written.
The Yukon Employees' Union leadership will continue discussions with the Government of Yukon as they write their Vaccine Mandate Policy. Discussions Friday October 29th indicated there's still plenty of work to be done before it is complete.
We continue to urge our members and all Yukoners to get vaccinated as an important workplace health and safety measure. If you have questions about where we stand, please visit our FAQs page, linked here.
