Update to questions and answers in June's Shop Talk Re: 1/2 day Christmas Eve/New Years Eve
COVID and WorkSafe
Members are reminded that, if they get sick from COVID, they should be filing a WorkSafe claim. Covid is an Industrial Disease and has been for over a year. Sick days or other compensation may come from this and the vast majority of these claims have been approved. The basic premise for adjudication thus far is it is known that there is COVID in schools and it's difficult to rule out contracting Covid from work and so, the claims have been approved on that basis.
