Attendance Phoneline Changes are Coming

Effective October 12th 2021, Family/Personal Emergency will replace the Personal Business selection on the attendance phoneline

Irving Shipbuilding needs our talented, skilled, and highly trained workforce to support the important work we do building and repairing Canada’s Navy ships. You are needed! We cannot build and repair ships without YOU!

We want to provide a clear option to employees when calling the attendance line.

We fully understand that family and personal emergencies arise and that employee may need to miss work for these important circumstances. Effective October 12th 2021, Family/Personal Emergency will replace the Personal Business selection on the attendance phoneline

Examples of Family/Personal Emergency include (but not limited to):

  • You are in a car accident/fender bender
  • Your child or spouse is sick and other care options have been exhausted
  • Your septic tank has backed up into the house
  • You or family member has been the victim of a crime
  • You or a close family member has an important medical appointment that cannot be scheduled outside of work hours
