COVID-19 Vaccination not Mandatory

During the last Labour Management meeting with the employer, CUPE 1048 union President, David Wieler asked if the City of Prince George had any plans to make the COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for their workers.  The answer was “no”.  Mandatory vaccinations are not something they have considered.  The City of Prince George has no plans to make the vaccine mandatory for their workers.
