AESES Office Closure and Event Cancellations: COVID-19
As a result of the COVID-19 virus and recommendations from the Province of Manitoba and Health Canada with regard to social distancing, AESES will be taking the following measures to ensure the well-being of our members and AESES Office staff:
- All education seminars for the Spring will be cancelled and registration fees will be returned in full.
- The Annual General Meeting, which was scheduled to take place on April 14th, will be postponed to a later date (to be determined).
- The annual Members’ Day Lunches, held in early May, will not be taking place this year.
In addition, AESES Office staff will be observing remote working arrangements; however, there will be one person in the office each weekday. Members can still reach the office and/or our labour relations staff with any questions or concerns they have as AESES staff will be monitoring phone and email messages regularly.
AESES is still in discussions with both universities with regard to their pandemic planning. We will continue to make every effort to press for safe working conditions for our members and answers to our questions, and to ensure that messaging is being delivered by the Universities to staff with regard to work expectations, and precautionary measures to be observed, during this time.
