Unions Push Back on Biden Vaccine Request

Joe Biden is now looking to his allies to help him hit his vaccine mark, but not all of them are buying into it.

In his quest to have the entire country vaccinated before the fall season and another expected COVID surge, Biden hoped unions would mandate the vaccine for all members, backing his federal employee vaccine mandate.

Unions are pushing back, however, stating this would be a collective bargaining issue.

Sorry, Joe

The Biden administration is now trying to mandate that all federal employees take the jab or be forced into regular testing and social distancing.

That may not be as simple as Joe Biden giving the order, however.

Several union groups have already pushed back, stating that Biden does not have the authority to take any such action against union employees.

This would include some Treasury Department workers, teachers, law enforcement, postal workers, and other government employees represented by unions.

Everett Kelley, president of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), stated, “We expect that the particulars of any changes to working conditions, including those related to COVID-19 vaccines and associated protocols, be properly negotiated with our bargaining units prior to implementation.”

AFGE represents about 700,000 government employees.

Larry Cosme, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, also pushed back, stating mandating a vaccine “is not the American way and is a clear civil rights violation no matter how proponents may seek to justify it.”

National Treasury Employees Union President Tony Reardon stated this his union has “a lot of questions about how this policy will be implemented and how employee rights and privacy will be protected.”

Even American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten pushed back, stating, “In order for everyone to feel safe and welcome in their workplaces, vaccinations must be negotiated between employers and workers, not coerced.”

This is a major problem for Biden because his pockets are lined with union cash.

The resistance by the union is going to be an embarrassment for this administration and a major roadblock for Biden to hit his vaccine goals before the fall.

  1. Good! I’m not dying cause all of you kooks are scared of a virus with a 1.5% death rate, and delta is about 0.08 for pete sakes! Stop obeying the communists!

  2. Here we go again taking away our constitutional freedoms.The Democrat Party throwing
    alot of fear into our country.This is America not a communist country where all is dictated
    to you.Wake up people before its to late.God bless America.

    1. Standard procedure. You want the people to follow your agenda you scare the jeepers out of them.

    1. This is one time that I agree with the union. Unions everywhere should not allow forced vaccines esp not when it is still in trials.

      1. Why isn’t he CLOSING OUR BORDERS?
        COME ON Republicans… Get it going!

  3. Dementia joe is at it again in violating the Constitution. Communist joe needs to be reminded that we are living in a Republic and not a Communist country. He and his puppet masters have been trampling on the Constitution and also the Bill of Rights and they keep forgetting that they work for us, United States citizens. With traitor pigsli playing GOD is another Communist in the government. They hate PRESIDENT TRUMP so much that do not realize the harm they are doing to this country.

    1. I think they realize the harm, they just want to make sure this country stays in the downward spiral they have put it in. That way all their idiot supporters will have to stay dependent on them for all their livelihood.

  4. Plus Biden is bribing folks to get the jab 100$ Walmart gift card which Walmart is now owned by china 💉💉💉🖕🖕

    1. Always knew Walmart was owned by China-China’s money bought Biden’s, Clinton’s,Obama, Google,Facebook,U-Tube-Everyone that’s communist.

  5. I wouldn’t abide by anything that old potato head wants. The guy lies about everything, especially who he is. He’s an old pervert that thinks he is Don Juan with a fat ugly wife who wants to be called, “doctor. “🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 What was her thesis? How she wrote Dr. Suess? Omfg we are in trouble with these liberal morons. 🤯🤯🤯

    1. I agree with you 1000%. Say anything that is opposite of what the “site police ” want to read & you get the
      ” this is not acceptable to the community standards ” or ” being held under review “. Now my question would be, since it was JUST posted ( the message,) how does the “community ” read it so fast & object to it ? I don’t use swear words but do point out specific people & if their a Democrat or have a leftist viewpoint & mine is opposite, it’s held up.
      Also this “under review ” stuff, who’s reviewing it? Everyone has an OPINION on anything, so if the reviewer has an opposing view, it gets held up. Big tech has now become too big & powerful & wants to shape your opinion or block it if it’s not like theirs, instead of just being an open platform where you can express your opinion without being censored.

      1. They can find it so fast because there are key words their computers look for. If any of those words come up your post gets a flag. The trick is to find the words their computers look for and avoid using them. This will most likely be pulled.

  6. IT FUNNY THAT WHEN YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WORDS THAT COME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE THAT SHOULD BE SAID, YOU GO TO PROTECT WITH THE QUICK reCAPTCHA. “SHAME ON YOU”

  7. DO YOU KNOW THAT IF ALL THE REMAINING PEOPLE THAT NEED THEIR VACCINES SHOTS GET THEIR $100.00 DOLLARS EACH IT WILL COST THE AMERICAM PEOPLE AROUND 17 TRILLION DOLLARS.
    THEN WILL THE ONES THAT HAVE ALREADY HAD THEIR VACCINES SHOTS DO THEY GET ALSO GET $100.00 DOLLARS, ADD ANOTHER 17 TRILLION DOLLARS

    1. The ones who have already got their shots since December can enter a drawing. It is a chance to win prizes. The add says it could be up to a $Million.

  8. I’m bumfuzzled, this delta variant has a much more higher survival than covid 19. So why all of the hoopla, I’ll tell you why, it’s another ploy to keep people from living day to day. Keep us under their thumb. Check and see what the death rate is for the variant of delta. I’ll tell you, it’s 0.08 . No where as bad as the flu, not as bad as pneumonia, chances of a heart attack are much higher. I’m not a doctor, but these things are what a doctor said.I myself have worn a mask for over a year and a half, I’ve had the vaccine, people you are being played. How many of y’all have heard of people being admitted to the.

  9. The criminal Biden and his fraudulent and criminal elite gangsters must go!! WE THE PEOPLE!! No more criminal politicians!! Take this country back.

  10. Rather than give $100 for people to get vaccinated, how about issuing a discount on groceries or something else to those that can show a vaccination card. That way everyone that is or will be vaccinated are treated the same.

  11. When is ANYONE going to retaliate? Pelosi and her cohorts are killing America…IMPEACH, IMPEACH IMPEACH!
