Temperature checks of IAMAW employees at Canadian airports

New protocols are in place at an airport near you whereby you will be subjected to a personal temperature check and if found to be elevated you will be removed from the work-place and sent home using your sick days and your RAIC will be ceased pending a healthy return, even if you test negative for COVID-19

The IAM is opposing this sick day use policy and has issued the following bulletins, in both official languages:
Bulletin No. 046_EN

Bulletin No. 046_FR

 

The IAM Employee Family Assistance Program, third party counselling

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and many of our members being laid off, the EFAP secured the ability for laid-off members to utilize the IAMAW portion of their counselling benefit. All that is required to access these benefits is to fill out a form and send it to the office for processing.  See the following bulletin for details
