The RCEA is aware of the recent statements by Prime Minister Trudeau regarding a required vaccine mandate for the federal public service. The RCEA has been involved in several meetings with the bargaining agents and Treasury Board Secretariat on this. These meetings have not been what we would consider fulsome consultations, as we have yet to see any official policy on this nor have we received any information on how it will be implemented. As soon as we have any firm information, it will be posted on the RCEA website.
We understand that some members have very strong personal feelings and concerns on this, however, until such time as the RCEA and other bargaining agents are provided with a policy, we are unable to comment further.
