SIU COVID-19 Update : June 12, 2020

June 12, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,

We wish to once again update Members on the status of the opening of the SIU Union Halls.

All SIU Union Halls will remain closed to Members until June 30, at which time we will re-evaluate the impact of COVID-19 infection rates and trends in the locations of our Halls, while also considering the rules and guidelines set out by provincial and local health authorities.

Union staff may be returning to the Halls prior to June 30th, depending upon the same health authority guidance, but for the time being Halls will remain closed.

We remind all Members that Union staff, and the medical plan, remain available by phone and email to assist all Members. Shipping will continue to follow weekend and holiday procedures.

For contact numbers for SIU officials, please refer to the update posted to our website here: https://www.seafarers.ca/siu-contact-information-during-covid-19/
