    Nov. 5, 2021 Update - Vaccine Mandate pushed out to January 4th
    As reported earlier, IAM 751 continues to engage in effects bargaining with all of our employers. Boeing announced today, after new rules were announced from the White House, that the deadline for complying with the Executive Order for Contractors to the federal government  has been pushed out to January 4th.

    We continue to propose important protections for our members during this process. As we have clearly stated, the IAM opposes vaccine mandates as this places some of our members in an untenable position.

    All our members have worked through the entire pandemic. We have fought for safe Covid practices in the workplace, PPE, regular cleaning and other protections in order to keep the workplace open.

    Our focus has been for our members, who can’t work from home like managers and executives have, to continue coming to work to earn a living for their families. It is wrong for workers to now be told they will be fired for being unable to comply with this vaccine mandate.

    We have proposed:
     - use of the OSHA standard which allows for regular testing as an alternative to the vaccine,
     - extending the timeframe for compliance,
     - transparent process for exemption requests,
     - weekly testing to ensure those positive for Covid don’t enter the workplace,
     - layoffs as an alternative to firing in order to protect seniority, pensions, recall and many other unnecessary punishments.

    We have received many calls for assistance with religious exemption requests. We encourage members that have a sincerely held religious belief against receiving the vaccine to submit a request for an exemption. We will ensure all requests are considered. We will investigate any denials.

    Your religious belief is just that, yours. It is not required to be lifelong, in-line with an organization you belong to, it can be uncommon and newly held. If you submit your opinion that this mandate is unconstitutional, not legal or violation of your civil rights then your request will most likely be denied as it would not be a sincerely held Religious Belief.

    Our members have worked through the toughest conditions to ensure the build, delivery and continued revenue keep flowing for this company. Threatening our members jobs once again shows just how much this company takes our membership for granted.

    We will continue to engage with management to try and reach an agreement that supports our entire membership.
