The ASU has been advised of an email that staff received informing that they are considered/align with construction workers and as a result are directing that staff be vaccinated.
The notification continued that if staff have not had their first injection by 23 September that alternative duties will need to be worked and if this is not accommodated then leave will need to be taken.
The ASU contacted Kingston and advised that this is an overreach of the current mandating of vaccination for the construction industry. As such the requirement to be vaccinated by the 23rd of September, evidence to be provided and if not complied with then leave to be taken needs to be retracted immediately.
We will provide further updates as they arise.
We are stronger when we are united. Members and potential members are welcome. Please come along and speak to your colleagues about attending as well.
