COVID-19 OPSEU Offices

Moved by Thomas/Almeida

Whereas the spread of COVID-19 virus seems to be accelerating rapidly and community spread is apparent; and

Whereas the health & safety of our staff and members IS OF paramount importance;

Therefore be it resolved that the Executive Board approve that the OPSEU offices will continue to be closed for an additional period of up to May 1, 2020 and to be reviewed at that time; and

Be it further resolved that a review prior to the end of this time will be undertaken to determine further action; and

Be it further resolved that during this period all OPSEU meetings, gatherings, educationals, arbitrations, etc. will be postponed or adjourned  and all essential meetings that cannot be postponed will be conducted via teleconference; and

Be it further resolved that during this period access to OPSEU buildings will be on an ”approved only” basis
