APC learned, along with everyone else, that the CSU intends to require all employees to be vaccinated prior to being allowed to return to work on campus.
We understand this news may have come as a shock to all of you. We also understand that this may come as a relief to some and yet, may trigger anxiety in others. Please know that APC will demand to bargain with the CSU over its decision.
APC will work to ensure the confidentiality of medical information is maintained, that there are protections for those who have legitimate reasons to be exempt from vaccinations but, above all, that no employee is placed in an unsafe or unhealthy environment. It is our goal to ensure the safety and needs of our bargaining unit members are placed before any attempt to meet some arbitrary reopening date established by someone sitting safely in an office.
We will begin the bargaining process immediately and will keep you abreast of any developments as soon as they occur.
