PIPSC operations and activities during the COVID-19 pandemic

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Our staff has been assessing the situation on a daily basis and following recommendations laid out by all levels of government. 

We are closing PIPSC offices across the country, allowing most of our employees to work from home from March 16 until April 4, 2020. For the time being, some staff will attend the office for specific tasks. Staff have been prepared for this closure and have everything they need to continue their work. We will continue to assess the situation daily and take any further precautions as necessary. 

We are doing our part to limit non-essential travel and exposure to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All PIPSC union-related activities are postponed until further notice. This includes meetings, trainings and social events. If possible, we will replace meetings with teleconferences or web-conferences. Any travel for PIPSC-related activities is being cancelled at this time.

During this time, our staff are committed to supporting members and will continue to be available by email and phone. Mailboxes will be monitored. We continue to work hard on behalf of all PIPSC members.

During this stressful time, we want to thank PIPSC members for their cooperation – especially those working in the healthcare sector who are taking care of Canadians across this country.
