Faculty union files group grievance against Fanshawe to restore mask mandate

The Fanshawe College Faculty Union has filed a group grievance against Fanshawe College in an effort to push the college to restore its mask mandate on campus. Fanshawe lifted mask mandates for the Fall semester, but faculty members are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 in the classroom and consequences for vulnerable family members. OPSEU Local 110 President Mark Feltham said that the college is obligated under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to “take steps reasonable in the circumstances to protect employees” regardless of whether there is a provincial mandate in place. Fanshawe must schedule a meeting within two weeks of the filing of the grievance.
