The Local has filed a union grievance against the college for a failure to abide by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act in relation to the recent security breach. This grievance was filed to protect members whose personal information and data might have been compromised by the phishing attack. The grievance seeks the production of all documentation disclosing which employees have been affected, and seeks damages for any affected employees.
For those members who have already been contacted by the college confirming a breach, we suggest that you contact the Local immediately to review your status and next steps to have the college pay you the damages or the costs of mitigating or avoiding incurring damages arising from the disclosure or unauthorized access. This includes damages that may be discovered in the future and are caused by the breach but are not yet known or have not yet occurred.
