This time they’re upset over reports that the president plans to mandate vaccines for all federal employees.

One union, the American Postal Workers Union that represents over 200,000 U.S. Postal Service employees, released a statement Wednesday bluntly stating that it’s not the federal government’s job to force vaccine diktats on people.

“Maintaining the health and safety of our members is of paramount importance. While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said.

 

@PastafarianIn case your MSM doesn't report it. :lol:

And more are speaking up against Biden's mandates:


Groups representing educators, postal workers, law enforcement officers, Treasury Department personnel and other government employees expressed unease about the vaccine requirement this week. Only a few public sector unions outright endorsed the measure.

 

"We expect that the particulars of any changes to working conditions, including those related to COVID-19 vaccines and associated protocols, be properly negotiated with our bargaining units prior to implementation," Everett Kelley, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents nearly 700,000 workers, said in a statement.

 

Larry Cosme, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said requiring vaccinations "is not the American way and is a clear civil rights violation no matter how proponents may seek to justify it."

 

National Treasury Employees Union President Tony Reardon said in a statement that the group has "a lot of questions about how this policy will be implemented and how employee rights and privacy will be protected."

 

 

I'll bet the backpedaling at the White House will begin tomorrow, or Tuesday latest.

What do you call it when your boss, the U.S. Government says get vaccinated or "you're fired"?

That's a mandate. 

Now be a man, admit you were wrong because you're uninformed, and move on.

As to the military:

 

>In comments at the White House, Biden stopped short of imposing a vaccine mandate right away. But he said he has asked the Defense Department to look into how, and when, the military will add vaccines to protect against COVID-19 to the list of other vaccinations service members must receive.<

As to the VA, that’s a health care environment: long ruled constitutional to require vaccinations. 
 

my god, you guys are so uninformed it’s funny. Almost as amusing as your efforts to vilify “mandate” where there isn’t one.

Why am I not surprised you're not man enough to just admit you were wrong?

Now repeating it after being corrected, makes you a liar. 

 

Quote

 

WASHINGTON -- The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday became the first major federal agency to require health care workers to get COVID-19 vaccines, as the aggressive delta variant spreads across the nation and some communities report troubling increases in hospitalizations among unvaccinated people.

The VA's move came on a day when nearly 60 leading medical and health care organizations issued a call for health care facilities to require their workers to get vaccinated. No federal law stands in the way of employers requiring vaccinations, but like mask mandates, the issue has been politicized in a society that's divided on matters of public health.

 

 

See those words?  "require" "mandates"....

That funny. I work in a hospital and we don’t have mandatory Covid requirements. MOST hospitals don’t. 
 

But at least you acknowledged you LIED and tried to claim they weren’t mandatory.
