Apr 10,2022: Personal Medical Information

An observation came from a Member this week that they were uncomfortable about being asked about the reason for their sick day or details about medical appointments.

To be clear, the Union has no power to stop someone from asking you a question. However, you must decide whether or not you wish to divulge that information. If you feel that any medical information asked of you is of concern to you regarding your personal privacy, it is up to you to make that determination & state it as such. You are under no obligation to disclose personal medical information for any reason but it is only you that can make that determination.

If you refuse to divulge personal medical information & a member of management attempts to discipline you for that action, the Union then has cause to intervene.
