Going Postal: American Postal Workers Union REJECTS Biden Vaccine Mandate

SUMMIT NEWS — After Joe Biden decreed Thursday that anyone working for the U.S. government will be forced to take coronavirus vaccines, the backlash began almost immediately with the American Postal Workers Union issuing a statement of defiance.

“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 statement urges.

It adds, “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.” […]

  1. Makes you wonder how legitimate this is! Of all the governmental agencies, this is the one that could bring the country to a standstill fast!!

  2. Postal workers have workered since day one of the Covid 19 pandemic and we had very few cases in our area post facilities and all at different times so it wasn’t spreading person to person at our facility. We’re working twice as hard and longer hours and stretches then ever. We have shortages in every craft in every area due to no new workers and online shopping is drastically rising. We wear our mask and do testing if asked but forcing people who has been on the front from day one will not just give up our arm. I don’t ask my waiter for a hepatitis c card to make sure they don’t have it. Should I ask my health care providers to prove they don’t have aids cause they mess with human fluids. I’m not asked to prove I have all my shots or flu shot to get hired at my job, but to keep my job I HAVE TO GET THE COVID shot. If you think the Post office over whelmed now just wait when we’re backed against a corner with a shot pointed at us.
