Regime employee union presses Biden to extend vaccine mandate deadline

“A union representing over 700,000 government employees asked the White House on Tuesday to extend a Nov. 22 deadline for government employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to bring it into line with a date set for contractors. The White House last week extended a deadline for federal contractors to get vaccinated from Dec. 8 to Jan. 4, part of a broader move to make it easier for companies to comply, some of whom face labor shortages over the U.S. holiday season. ‘Setting different compliance deadlines for employees vis-a-vis contractors is both harmful to morale and substantively unjustified,” the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) wrote in an ‘urgent request,’ noting contractors often work alongside federal employees.” (11/09/21)
