May 5, 2021
To: MoveUP Members at Bonny's Taxi and Vancouver Taxi
We are writing to let you know that Bill 3 has recently passed, which amends the Employment Standards Act to provide for full-time and part-time employees with up to three hours of paid leave for each dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
This comes at a time where more and more British Columbians are getting the ability to 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 your job steward for assistance.
