United Airlines Allows Unvaccinated Employees to Resume Their Employment at End of the Month
United Airlines has announced that they will be allowing their unvaccinated employees to resume their employment effective March 28.
The Hill received a memo from United showing that the carrier, which was one of the first large U.S. employers to mandate vaccines, is capitulating on their order.
“We plan to welcome back those employees who have been out on an approved [accommodation] to their normal positions starting March 28,” the memo stated.
United is using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as cover to make their announcement, as Democrats and their globalist backers shutter the COVID-19 pandemic approaching the upcoming midterm elections.
“These changes suggest that the pandemic is beginning to meaningfully recede,” the memo stated. “As a result, we’re confident we can safely begin the process of returning employees with accommodations to their jobs.”
Big League Politics has reported on how airlines were at the forefront of the movement toward mandatory vaccines when pandemic hysteria was still at its peak:
“The private sector, specifically large corporations, appear to be increasingly on the frontlines when it comes to ushering an Orwellian dystopia. From openly discriminating against White males to coercing employees into their specific political agenda, corporations in America have been slowly coming out of their economic shell and into the political fray for some time, and mostly on one side of the spectrum. The latest example of this has been with regards to enforcing the medical tyranny propagated by the Biden regime.
According to The Epoch Times, several key players in the airline industry have diligently added their hats into the ring of medical tyranny by issuing their independent vaccine mandates for their employees, namely American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and JetBlue. This is the latest in a string of announcements from the private sector to cooperate with the Biden regime to enforce its whims onto the American people. Such collusion qualifies as the technical definition of Fascism, i.e. the collusion of state and corporate power to achieve certain outcomes.
The main excuse being used by these airlines is the executive order signed by the sniffer-in-chief last month requiring all companies that serve as federal contractor in some capacity to force their employees to surrender their medical autonomy by the 8th of December. And since these airlines provide custom flights and other services for the federal government from time to time, they have taken the liberty to identify as federal contractors and subsequently dropped the medical hammer on their employees.
“While we are still working through the details of the federal requirements, it is clear that team members who choose to remain unvaccinated will not be able to work at American Airlines,” Doug Parker, American Airlines chief executive, told employees in an Oct. 1 memo.
Alaska Airlines, not to be outdone, sent a similar memo on the same day to its employees that explicitly barred regular testing as an alternative to getting the hastily-approved vaccine.
“This means employees may no longer opt-in for regular testing and masking in lieu of getting the vaccine,” Alaska Airlines said in a memo to employees.
Vice President of people for Alaska Airlines Andy Schneider informed The Seattle Times on how this executive order applies to any and all subsidiaries that the airline works with, saying that “After careful review of this order, we have determined that Alaska, Horizon, and McGee employees (including certain contractors and vendors) do fall under this federal vaccine mandate due to our significant work for the federal government, alongside the other major U.S. airlines. This policy will replace our company policy of vaccination or testing that we announced earlier this month.”
Jet Blue, in what seems to be an effort to win medical tyranny gold, told CNBC that even employees largely working from home would also be required to get vaccinated as a condition of continued employment.”
Democrats and their corporate partners are hoping to end the pandemic with mid-term elections right around the corner. The voters must not forget, or these mandates will return in full force as soon as the election season is over.
