The Charlotte Observer reported, on October 6, American Airlines notified all employees in the United States via email that they must be fully vaccinated by November 24, or they will be fired. American Airlines said that this decision is in response to Biden’s order requiring federal contractors to have vaccinated employees by December 8.
According to statistics, at least 125,000 American Airlines employees will be required to be vaccinated.
Dallas Morning News reported, on October 7, hundreds of employees gathered outside the American Airlines headquarters to protest this mandate. The airline workers’ union warned that firing unvaccinated employees would exacerbate worker shortages and employee burnout, both of which are now getting worse.
Previously, United Airlines was the first airline in the United States to require employees to be vaccinated against the CCP virus. Southwest Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines also announced mandatory vaccination requirements. Delta Air Lines is currently the only airline that has not mandated its employees to be vaccinated.
However, the increasing pressure from airlines is bound to provoke dissatisfaction and backlash from employees, and arouse more people to fight back in uncooperative ways such as strikes and demonstrations.
