The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on workplaces and union-management relations. Arbitrators, unions, and employers have dealt with new and developing issues such as mandatory vaccination, testing, accommodation, protection of worker health and safety, sick pay, discipline for safety violations, leaves of absence, and many other issues.

Amanda Lawrence-Patel and a panel of experts will discuss how Canadian and U.S. arbitrators have decided COVID-related issues, and how the interests of unions and employers may be addressed.
