What sort of payoff did “The Big Guy” obtain from the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) to grant USPS employees such a sweeping exemption?
Joe Biden on Thursday declared struggle on unvaccinated People throughout a press convention on his “6-pronged” strategy to fight Covid-19.
Federal employees shall be pressured to take the Covid jab beneath Biden’s new order.
Moreover, companies with 100+ staff shall be pressured to both take a look at employees or show they’re vaccinated.
OSHA will high-quality companies as much as $14,000 per violation.
Nevertheless, USPS employees are exempt from Biden’s new order.
Recall, APWU, one of many very highly effective unions representing postal employees blasted Joe Biden in July: “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.”
In keeping with a report by the Washington Submit, USPS employees are EXEMPT regardless that they’re required to be included in government orders that apply to federal staff.
By way of WaPo:
U.S. Postal Service employees weren’t included in Biden’s government order requiring all federal staff to get vaccinated in opposition to the coronavirus, in line with a White Home official talking on the situation of anonymity to debate not-yet-public parts of the president’s plan.
The postal employees could be strongly inspired to adjust to the mandate, the official mentioned.
The transfer exempts a large chunk of the federal workforce — 644,000 staff and rising because the company ramps up seasonal hiring — that interacts day by day with an equally massive swath of the general public.
Replace: White Home official now says USPS employees ARE a part of the federal vaccine mandate beneath OSHA jurisdiction, although technically not beneath the manager order.
JUST IN: White Home official now says USPS employees ARE a part of the federal vaccine mandate beneath OSHA jurisdiction, although technically not beneath the manager order.
