This policy is a living document and has been developed at a time when workplaces are responding to the challenges of operating within an environment where New Zealand is combating the spread of COVID 19. It reflects both the CTU’s intention to proactively support the national vaccination roll-out, while also providing information for Unions on the fundamental legal principles around vaccines.
This policy sits alongside affiliates’ own policies. Given the rapidly evolving situation and understanding that exists about COVID, this policy will be regularly reviewed and updated.
The NZCTU position on the national response to COVID continues to remain consistent with science based public health advice. There is a need for measures to be consulted on, engaged on, and implemented with working people and their unions.
