GTAWU Continues To Engage SGU In Matter Of Unvaccinated Workers

PR – As part of its ongoing representation of unvaccinated members at the St. Georges University, the Grenada Technical and Allied WorkersUnion (GTAWU) held a meeting with the said workers on Monday, June 28, 2021, to decide on the way forward

Given the fact that workers had different positions on what they wanted, it was agreed that each individual worker must be given the opportunity to decide what option was best for them

The necessary communication was sent out to the workers and most have since responded to indicate the options and positions they wanted the Union to seek from the University

The Grenada Technical and Allied WorkersUnion continues to insist that vaccination must not be made mandatory and must not be a condition for continued employment for existing workers

The Union has also raised with SGU that Breastfeedingmothers must be exempted from taking the vaccine for fear of possible adverse impact on the infant. Following representation from the Union, the University has withdrawn its position regarding the nonpayment of health insurance premiums

GTAWU has now written to SGU seeking a meeting to be held during the week of Monday, July 12, 2021

Workers are encouraged to maintain contact with the Union
