The Union was just advised that Hong Kong has also implemented a 14 day quarantine to anyone that arrives and has been in China over the last 14 days. Crew scheduling has reviewed schedules and is actively contacting members that would knowingly fall into this parameter. If you have visited China in the last 14 days personally, please ensure you advise crew scheduling.
We would also like to remind members that it is strongly advisable if you are sick with flu like symptoms to ensure you follow ePub and your Collective Agreement for booking off sick.
The company has issued the following:
