SW Airlines CEO - we will not fire any employees refusing vaccine
AmGreatness

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,

The tide is turning.

More in the private sector need to step up.

During an interview with ABC News Tuesday, Gary Kelly, the CEO of Southwest Airlines, stated that no employees would be fired over the company’s vaccine mandate. However, the airline announced on October 4 that all 56,000 U.S. Southwest employees needed to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 24, or face termination.

They might not “fire” them, but they will put them on unpaid leave.

This.

They have no real means to compel this mandate to occur. They are counting on fear to ensure compliance. Refuse to give in to that fear.

Sadly, what some companies are doing is changing their employment statuses to Voluntary Resignation once they hit the deadline and are unvaxxed.

re: SW Airlines CEO - we will not fire any employees refusing vaccine
Interesting, wonder how they will square that with their own previous announcements and the government contractor mandate.

I hope it's not just doubletalk like "We'll get out anyone who wants to get out"

Now explain this to me like I'm Michael Scott's spermatozoa

Won't OSHA come in as a result?

1. So it's not a mandate then.

2. Is being afraid of needles a religious thing? Because it is not grounds for a medical exemption.

When few people trained in a very difficult field can control the resources and also set the course for a business’s success and failures — that’s serious stuff and CEO’s better not mess around. This isn’t Hertz or Pizza Hut.

If they are on unpaid leave they still don't have anyone to fly their planes.

As has been stated over and over on this site; There is no mandate through OSHA.

Yep. It takes some people with balls, like the SW pilots, to show the way.

THen why the looming threat of OSHA coming in hard? That's where my disconnect comes in.

Nor do they have the power to make such a mandate.
