COVID-19 and Vaccinations
Our efforts have remained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure continuity of service and continued delivery of support to our members.
Members who have questions about vaccination policies, can email C19info@bcfmwu.com and a staff member will get back to you.
The Union’s role is to protect members’ rights as laid out in the Collective Agreement. This includes fighting for workplace safety, as well as accommodations for workers who cannot get vaccinated for reasons protected by the Human Rights Code.
What is COVID-19?
Corona viruses are a large family of viruses found mostly in animals. In humans, they can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). The new coronavirus has been named COVID-19.
While many of the characteristics of COVID-19 are still unknown, mild to severe illness has been reported for confirmed cases.
Anyone concerned that they may have been exposed to, or are experiencing symptoms of the novel coronavirus, should contact their primary care provider, local public health office, or call 8-1-1.
