DC37 Statement on Vaccine Mandate

Dear [DC37] Delegates,
 
As promised during our meeting Tuesday night, I want to provide an update on our negotiations with the City regarding the vaccine mandate.
Last night, a judge in Richmond County denied the PBA a temporary restraining order on the mandate. A date to hear the case has been set for November 12, but as we know that is after the City’s deadline of Friday, October 29.
 
This morning, District Council 37, along with other Civilian Unions within the MLC, had a bargaining session to discuss the implementation of this mandate. This was a follow up to the session we held on Monday.
 
Unfortunately, the Mayor and his administration are being completely unreasonable on the timeline for implementation. The Mayor is insisting on maintaining the deadline of Friday, October 29 for vaccination and will not extend the deadline for religious and medical exemptions, which was yesterday at 5pm. At this time, because of the Mayor’s intransigence, we do not have a deal.

To receive the $500.00 bonus the first dose must be completed by 5pm Friday October 29, 2021. The union continues to bargain over the impact the mandate has on the members.
