It looks like United Airlines will become the first major airline to mandate all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
according to NBC Finance Channel, The airline announced that they require its 67,000 U.S. employees to be vaccinated no later than October 25, otherwise they may face the risk of being terminated at the airline.
On Friday, United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby and President Brett Hart said in an employee report: “We know that some of you will disagree with the decision to require all United Airlines employees to be vaccinated. However, we have no more important responsibility to you and your colleagues than to ensure your safety at work. The fact is very clear: everyone is safer after everyone is vaccinated.”
The airline executive added: “In the past 16 months, Scott has sent dozens of letters of condolences to the families of United Airlines employees who died of COVID-19. We are determined to do everything we can to prevent another The Manchester United family received that letter.”
CNBC reported that executives announced that employees must provide proof of vaccination five weeks or October after full approval by federal officials. On the 25th, whichever comes first. However, this authorization does not apply to regional airlines that provide United Airlines with shorter routes, and there are exceptions for airlines with certain health problems or religious reasons.
Many cities are also considering mandatory vaccination to participate in indoor activities.
