Seven of our members have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 in Port-Cartier Institution, (Quebec Region). As we work to respect these member’s privacy, executive members have provided outreach, and by all accounts, our members are doing well and having symptoms but nothing too severe.
UCCO-SACC-CSN has been working with the employer to make sure all measures are in place to prevent any spread within the institution to ensure the health and safety of our members in the workplace.
Anyone who may have had close contact with these members are not reporting to work for a period of time that will ensure the virus has not spread, and the proper investigations are ongoing with CSC management and health care officials, to make sure the workplace remains safe. The institution remains locked down awaiting guidance from public health, cleaning protocols have been initiated, transfers to the site are currently suspended.
