RE: Covid-19 Vaccination

Dear Mr Timmins
I refer to our previous correspondence of the 12th January 2021 calling on the relevant state agencies to provide priority treatment for our members in the roll out of the Covid-19
vaccination programme and despite formal confirmation of same I presume Tesco Ireland are supportive of this call?

As we see a widening of the vaccination programme I would be obliged if you could confirm whether any provision is being made for the following.

  1. Paid time off in order to facilitate our members’ attendance at vaccination appointments.
  2. Paid time off in circumstances where our members experience a short term excessive
    negative reaction to the vaccine that prohibits their attendance at work.

Yours sincerely
For Mandate Trade Union
