HEU and COVID-19 Information for members


COVID-19 HEU Hotline

HEU has set up a COVID-19 hotline to answer questions for HEU members related to their workplace and their employment. The line will be monitored Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The line will not be monitored on weekends or statutory holidays.

Your shop steward in your workplace may know the answers to many of your questions -- or will know how to get them -- so check with them first.
