American Postal Workers Union Opposes Mandatory Vaccinations ‘At This Time’
July 29, 2021 | BY Source| Epoch Times |
“The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) has said that it opposes mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations, amid reports that the White House is considering so-called vaccine passports as a condition of employment for federal employees.
The union, which represents over 220,000 postal workers, released a statement on July 28 saying that while it will encourage postal workers to get vaccinated against the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19, it’s “not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent.”
“Issues related to vaccinations and testing for COVID-19 in the workplace must be negotiated with the APWU. At this time, the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations in relation to U.S. postal workers,” the statement reads.
The APWU released its statement a day after President Joe Biden said the White House is considering mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for all federal workers.”
