Labor groups push for Biden’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate to move forward

Three labor organizations are calling on the Biden administration to revise its Covid-19 vaccine mandate, with some saying the policy is too restrictive to apply only to large companies.

The AFL-CIO and the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union last week petitioned federal court to ask the Occupational Health and Safety Administration to review new federal vaccine policy, which directs companies with 100 or more employees to require employees to be either vaccinated or regularly tested for Covid-19 and wear masks. SEIU, Local 32BJ, which is part of the larger Service Employees International Union, also filed a petition in federal court last week.
