The City of Windsor will be hiring after 43 full-time and 61 temporary part-time jobs were left vacant by staff members who did not comply with the corporation’s staff vaccination policy.

As was reported on December 16th, 2021, undeclared/unvaccinated City staff have two key dates to meet for COVID-19 vaccination: January 4th for proof of a first dose; and February 1st for proof of a second dose.

The city says that 3,463 employees are now compliant with the policy, but 104 others are not, and the latter will receive letters of termination.

“The full impact of the Omicron Variant is still unknown, but we can see today the devastating effects it is having on our schools, businesses, and our healthcare system,” said Chief Administrative Officer Jason Reynar.
“We know that the only path available to keep our employees and our residents safe is through vaccination. I’m therefore very thankful to our employees who have been vaccinated and who continue to provide the critical services, programs and infrastructure to our community.”

Non-compliance on the part of Transit Windsor staff led to an unavoidable reduction in transit service, the city says, which took effect November 22nd, 2021, and will remain in place until further notice.
