In recent days, the number of workers testing positive for COVID-19 at the Gateway East facility in Mississauga has greatly increased. Public health authorities have ordered that all shift #3 employees are to self-isolate. These employees will receive paid quarantine leave. All shift #2 employees will have to be tested for COVID-19 or self-isolate for 14 days.
I know I speak for all postal workers when I extend our wishes for a quick and full recovery to all of our members who have tested positive. On behalf of the National Executive Board, I wish to express our solidarity with the membership of the Toronto local. I also wish to thank the members of the Toronto Local Executive and the Regional Officers in Metro Toronto for their excellent work in representing their members during this difficult time.
