COVID 19 and Travel

2021-05-01 Travel for work is allowed. You can travel back and forth through the health regions for work. If you go through a traffic stop all they can ask for is the driver’s id and home address and where he is going. That’s it, they cannot make a record of your travel and location etc., unless they suspect you of trying to make non-essential travel. Call the hall or Geoff Higginson if you have any problems.

2021-04-27 Current rules and orders allow you to travel in and between health regions in BC. You should not require anything other than telling law enforcement that you are travelling to work, if you do want a clearance slip we will send one. Contact info@bac2bc.org or outside regular hours ghigginson@bac2bc.org. Or Call 778-847-2472.

Currently our work is considered essential and travelling between health authorities is allowed if it is your work. We have contacted the government today and were advised that if there are any changes to the rules for travel when you are going to work the government will announce these changes on Friday probably just after noon.

The union will draft a “clearance letter” that we can issue to prove you have been dispatched to work and will work with the contractors to ensure there are no problems with your transit to the jobs you are hired on. If you are travelling send an email to ghigginson@bac2bc.org to register so we can send you a personalized clearance letter if necessary.

We are hearing anecdotal accounts of exposures and quarantines in Alberta in the patch. Alberta does not have rules guaranteeing daily wages when quarantined. BC does for any of our industrial camps named in the Provincial health Officers Orders and Guidance. If you are in Alberta working contact Bricklayers Local 1 AB for official information.
