May 10, 2021

To: MoveUP Members at Vancouver Shipyards, Victoria Shipyards and Seaspan ULC

We are writing to let you know that Bill 3 has recently passed which amends the Employment Standards Act to provide for all full-time and part-time employees with up to three hours of paid leave to receive each of your COVID-19 vaccines.

This comes at a time where more and more British Columbians can get their COVID-19 vaccination.  The BC Government has identified that this paid leave is in effect retroactive to April 19, 2021.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at ygarie@moveuptogether.ca or to your job steward for assistance.

In solidarity,

Yudon Garie, Union Representative
