Leave For Vaccinations - BCGEU

Your union understands the need to book your vaccination at the earliest opportunity, and this may result in having to do so during regularly scheduled working hours. If so, you are entitled to a leave with pay under Article 20.11 of the Collective Agreement. If you have difficulty obtaining a leave for your vaccination, please refer your supervisor to the following new Public Service FAQ, updated on March 5, 2021.
