Bulletin – Quarantine Benefit

Six months since the onset of COVID-19 we are now experiencing our first confirmed cases. Three members from Local 500 tested positive and are currently isolating however last week three of these workers wolfed jobs in Local 502’s jurisdiction before symptoms appeared.

With members traveling from “depressed ports” and the foremen’s Local 514 working at multiple sites, this could spread like wildfire amongst the ranks of our ILWU families.

LOCALS – Upon confirmation of a confirmed case Locals should:

  • Request the BCMEA supply a list of details for each positive COVID worker dating back 14 days prior to testing with the dates, terminals, vessels, jobs, and the shifts worked.
  • Once supplied with this information the Locals affected will post an update on their websites.
  • ILWU Canada will also post this information on the website. All longshore workers must check these postings to verify possible exposure.

WORKERS – Upon confirmation of a confirmed case of exposure workers should:

  • Check to see if they were on the same Vessel or Terminal on the specific days and shifts listed should adhere to the recommendations on the BC Government’s website, HealthLink BC.
  • ESDC has given the following directions for COVID-19 matters, that individuals contact and follow the advice of their local health authority. In the lower mainland those would be Fraser Health Authority and the Vancouver Health Authority.

Recommendations from the BC Provincial HealthLink website are:

“Anyone who may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or has returned from international travel should self-isolate and watch for symptoms of COVID-19 that can appear up to 14 days after exposure to the virus.”

COVID-19 Isolation Coverage:

  • “A” Coverage Members and “A” Board Casuals can apply for the recently agreed to 14-day COVID-19 Quarantine Benefit negotiated by our Trustee’s.

For those who are still working it is more important than ever to continue to practice safe social distancing, follow each sites COVID-19 Protocols, and wash your hands often.
