Dear Husky Partner,
As we emerge from the extreme lockdowns put in place by various governments around the world, the effects of the pandemic will be felt for years to come. The impacts on our lives and livelihoods arising from the implemented policies and rules infringe upon the very rights and freedoms we know as Canadians.
Recently, Husky has been receiving questions from customers, partners, and suppliers regarding its position towards vaccination. Husky has not, nor will it adopt a stance where it will seek to require its team members to get vaccinated. This decision belongs to each team member individually. We expect Husky’s team members to research the benefits and risks associated with such a choice in order to make an informed decision. No matter the decision taken by a team member, at no time shall Husky discriminate against its team members based on their decision taken in this regard.
On Thursday, August 26, 2021, I am also meeting with the government to discuss these very issues, and I am seeking your feedback on this very important topic. During my discussion with the Minister, I will share the thoughts and opinions of Husky, our customers, partners, and suppliers as to how we see the government policies impacting the recovery of our industry and the small business community.
I would like to ask that you share your opinion in a short and anonymous poll with me. I feel strongly that we need to continue to advocate for the protection of our lives and livelihoods – and the rights and freedoms of Canadians.
Thank you for your collaboration and support.
President and CEO, Husky Injection Molding Systems, Ltd.
