FOR THE INFORMATION OF MEMBERS:
It must be acknowledged that the environment that we are currently navigating in respect of COVID-19 is a dynamic one. With that noted, today the Victorian Government issued a revised "COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Workers) Direction". Section 8.8.(b).(i) provides an exemption to Commonwealth employees. As a result, Airservices will not be required to mandate vaccination for ARFFS personnel located in Victoria.
