All AJC members in Ottawa are safe and we remind all to follow safety protocol

Federal employees in Ottawa are back at work this morning.

As the tragic events unfolded yesterday in Ottawa, many AJC members working in the downtown area were in lockdown mode and were not allowed to leave their offices.

The lockdown measures for the majority of our members were lifted late in the afternoon yesterday and all AJC members are safe.  Federal employees in Ottawa are back at work this morning.

As things get back to 'normal' today (Thursday, October 23, 2014), we remind our members to keep following all safety protocols, and to continue to remain vigilant.

The AJC would like to thank DOJ's Colleen Laframboise and Marie-Josée Thivierge for their frequent updates on security measures during these stressful events.

Yesterday was a very scary time for all AJC members working downtown, for all federal employees in the nation's Capital.  Those who were locked down for most of the day were stressed and frustrated, but such measures are important for maintaining public safety.

Please be reminded to make use of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at 1-800-268-7708, or 1-800-567-5803 (for persons with a hearing impairment), or to contact the Ottawa Distress Centre at 613-238-3311 in case you require additional support.
