Update on Pandemic Pay for CUPE Community Health Sector Members

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

Greetings to CUPE Community Health Sector Members:

Re: Update regarding payment of province’s Temporary Pandemic Pay

We wish to inform you that the provincial government has updated the information on its Temporary Pandemic Pay website:

https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/emergency-preparedness-response-recovery/covid-19-provincial-support/temporary-pandemic-pay.

Of note, the website now states: “Eligible employees will begin to see temporary pandemic pay reflected on their paycheques in October. The timing for payments is dependent in part on the claim accuracy and when it is submitted for validation.”

We have also been informed that the temporary pandemic pay should be paid for overtime hours worked during the eligible period of March 15-July 4, 2020.

The bulletin is attached below and will it be posted to the CUPE Community Health website and Facebook page.

Sincerely,

Chris Losito
CUPE National Representative
