Statement: Mandatory Vaccinations for All Federal Public Service Employees

Lack of Consultation

The Federal Government just announced a unilateral decision to require mandatory vaccinations for all federal public service employees. CAPE is disappointed by the lack of consultation around this decision and the absence of advance notice. 

Mandatory vaccinations for all federal public service employees will have serious implications and will bring a new level of disruption that would have been better addressed through thoughtful discussions and coordination with unions. 

CAPE remains committed to its mandate to protect the rights and, health and safety of all its members in the workplace.
