This Thursday, the Boeing Company stated that they mandate the vaccines for their employees, and if they reject the shot, they will face termination!
Leaked documents tell that the workers plan a sickout for every Friday beginning on October 15. The deadline for the employees to get fully vaccinated is December 8. The policy will apply to 140,000 workers in the company.

Communications by Human Events tells us that Boeing union workers think “Boeing has acted in bad faith” and knew “months ago” that a mandate was coming.
The company’s employees spoke to the Pose Millennial and said they were under the impression that union leadership was fighting the mandates and the compromise would be worked out, or at least a test-out option would be given.
Jon Holden, the President of IAM District 751, lettered the members in the October issue of the union’s paper Aero Mechanic, “the reality is our members are polarized on this issue.”
“It is our responsibility to defend and advocate for all our members, including “those who can’t or won’t accept the vaccine.” He continued.
These communications were tagged #Freedomflu. A rally against the mandate was scheduled for Friday from 12 pm to 4 pm at the Boeing factory in Washington.

The unvaccinated employees want to get the first Moderna vaccine on October 27, and Pfizer on November 3, and J&J on November 24.
The original internal Boeing emails state, “A failure to meet the vaccine requirements by the due date would result in an involuntary resignation, not a termination for cause. It is considered resignation and would not result in any policy variation for the payout of VAC, PTO, SL, Pension, 401K….”
“Boeing 100% wants to retain all of our employees. That being said, many employees have strong feelings around the recent company response to the Executive order-implementing a Vaccine Requirement.” It added.
A Boeing internal presentation this Tuesday stated, “Compliance with these requirements is a condition of employment. Employees who are unable to meet these requirements … may be released from the company.”
However, the workers can get exemptions, “…due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief,” and if they get the exemption, they would have to get frequent testing and present a negative test result upon request.
From the email to the workers, we can read, “As a US government contractor, Boeing is required to comply with President Biden’s recent executive order requiring COVID-19 vaccines for federal contractors.”
Amazon still hasn’t announced the vaccine mandate. But this company, as a federal contractor, could ask for it to announce the mandates.
The Post Millennial reported, “Amazon has not announced a vaccine mand. However, as a federal contractor, the company could be required to do so under new rules from the Department of Labor. Southwest and American Airlines, both based in Texas, have also mandated the vaccine for employees and faced strong opposition from employees, especially pilots.”
One Boeing worker said that the email “…is what they sent to the masses, leaving the managers to deliver the details around termination.” The same employee added, “They have opted not to allow for a testing option unless you get a religious exemption. Then it’s weekly testing and testing on demand. I’ll lose my job and forfeit unemployment insurance. Likely losing my pension due to termination.”
Boeing is probably to face resistance against the new policy, especially in some states. This Monday, Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott introduced an executive order prohibiting private companies from asking for vaccine mandates.
Boeing with more than 5,000 employees in Texas and 32,000 in facilities located in other republican governed states like Alabama, Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
The Seattle Times reported that Boeing’s factory’s production is depressed, even though the deliveries were ramping up of the 737 MAX in September due to the manufacturing quality problems.
