Arbitrator strikes down Stellantis COVID-19 vaccine mandate – CBC

Decision ‘should in no way be taken as support for remaining unvaccinated,’ the arbitrator wrote

Jun 20, 2022

A COVID-19 vaccine mandate for Canadian Stellantis employees that was fought by some Unifor locals has been struck down by an arbitrator in a decision made after “careful review and not without considerable personal reservation.”

Arbitrator Marilyn Nairn sided with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada, the Stellantis subsidiary, in concluding that the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine policy was reasonable at the outset, and continued to be reasonable.

But following a review of evidence surrounding waning immunity and the effect of the Omicron variant, she concluded there was “negligible difference” in the risk of transmission between receiving two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and remaining unvaccinated, and therefore the policy was no longer reasonable.

“This decision should in no way be taken as support for remaining unvaccinated against COVID-19, absent a legitimate exemption,” she wrote.
