Support for Members who have needed to leave the workplace

It is important that we take all the necessary actions to slow the spread of COVID-19 and we thank those who have agreed to self-isolate as instructed. We also recognize some members have chosen to stay home and care for family members. The government has made support available through changes to Employment Insurance.
