As you may have seen, the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer (OCHRO) has updated their occupational health guidelines in response to the growing concern of the Omicron variant.
There are four key adjustments to their guidance:
With provinces offering different availability and eligibility for a third booster dose, it is unclear at this time whether the COVID-19 vaccination mandate for core public service employees will be updated to include a third dose. However, we will be sure to inform members when this information becomes available.
We are also strongly advocating for the widespread and centralized application across departments of telework whenever possible to keep public servants safe, as only considering increasing remote work is not enough. In a joint letter with several bargaining agents, we urged President of the Treasury Board President Mona Fortier to issue a clear message to deputy heads that public service employees who can telework should do so.
