quote:

“We’re not going to fire any employees over this. We’re urging all of our employees to get vaccinated. If they can’t get vaccinated, we’re urging them to seek an accommodation, so we’ll do everything we can to support our people here,” he said.

Amazing how fast these people cave when the employees say "No."

They won't be fired, just put on indefinite unpaid leave.

They'll essentially force them to quit. Big difference.

They're not caving. They'll just find another way to get rid of them.

Guess Southwest realized they couldn't operate without pilots.

I took it to mean an exemption. Medical, religious, etc.

This is nothing new, he's just playing word games. The mandate was a "vax or negative covid test" word game from the beginning.

Hard for them to collect a paycheck without a job.

This might be a little different due to the skillset involved.

Guess we have to wait and see.

It's pretty clear the cancelled flight weren't due to weather.

Then work for a union and keep your ideas to yourself.

But then I guess you would turn around and bitch when certain unions protect professions you don’t like.

Firing them means having to pay toward their unemployment claims. Just "temporarily taking them off the schedule" means they can avoid that financial hit.
