Note: URFA has a new webpage where we will be posting updates regarding COVID-19 on campus. Visit it here.
URFA continues to closely monitor the situation regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the changes that are being made that affect the working environment of URFA members.
Yesterday, the University of Regina sent out guidelines for working remotely. URFA encourages U of R and FNUniv APT members to speak with your direct supervisor to arrange working remotely. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to work remotely, please contact the URFA office as soon as possible. The U of R’s guidelines for working remotely, including for those who have child care obligations, can be found here: https://www.uregina.ca/covid-19/assets/docs/pdf/remote-work-guidelines-mar-17.pdf
For members who are remaining on campus, please remember to abide by social disatancing practices. As a reminder, all URFA members have the right to refuse to work in conditions that are deemed to be unsafe. If you have any questions about refusing unsafe work, please contact the URFA Office.
As well, if any APT members are notified of any reduction in work hours that affect your salary, pension and benefits, please notify the URFA office as soon as possible.
URFA staff are currently working remotely, however, we are still working hard to serve all members during this time. As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding changes to your working environment due to COVID-19, or anything else, please contact us and we will assist you.
