District Bulletin 46 – AIR CANADA COVID-19 TEMPERATURE CHECKS AT THE AIRPORTS

The District 140 held a meeting with Air Canada’s labour relations representatives last Friday July 31st. The purpose was to discuss various items including the latest Transport Canada Covid-19 temperature check protocol for airport employees recently imposed last week.

The union was advised that the company will be using its sick day policy to cover members who register a high temperature and have their RAIC ceased while they go for testing even if their tests come back negative. The union is opposed to this measure as members are being forced to use sick days when they themselves are not claiming to be sick and a 3rd party is blocking access to their work place. Furthermore, only frontline employees are being subjected to this and not employees who do not work behind security lines. Read Bulletin here…
