Southwest Ditches Plan to Put Unvaccinated Employees on Unpaid Leave


After ‘bad weather’ caused a major disruption in Southwest Airlines flights, employees protested at the company’s headquarters.

Here’s footage of yesterday’s Southwest protest in Dallas:

The protestors pushed back against Southwest’s plan to enforce Biden’s unconstutional COVID-19 jab mandate.

Originally, Southwest intended to place unvaccinated employees without a religious or medical exemption on unpaid leave.

But the resistance by Southwest employees scored a major victory in the fight against medical tyranny.

Southwest dropped its plan to place unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave.

Here’s the latest:

That’s the result when you ‘Hold The Line.’

Mass non-compliance is the only way the people win against these tyrannical mandates.

Without employees, businesses would cease to operate.

If enough workers band together against Biden’s dictates, they’re unenforceable.

Businesses who comply with the executive order will collapse and learn a hard lesson about not standing up for the individual freedoms of their employees.

Southwest employees should inspire other workers to rise up against medical tyranny.

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Trust Fox News?

CNBC had the story:

Southwest Airlines has scrapped a plan to put unvaccinated employees who have applied for but haven’t received a religious or medical exemption on unpaid leave starting by a federal deadline in December.

Southwest Airlines and American Airlines are among the carriers that are federal contractors and subject to a Biden administration requirement that their employees are vaccinated against Covid-19 by Dec. 8 unless they are exempt for medical or religious reasons. Rules for federal contractors are stricter than those expected for large companies, which will allow for regular Covid testing as an alterative to a vaccination.

Executives at both carriers in recent days have tried to reassure employees about job security under the mandate, urging them to apply for exemptions if they can’t get vaccinated for medical or for a sincerely held religious belief. The airlines are expected to face more questions about the mandate when they report quarterly results Thursday morning. Pilots labor unions have sought to block the mandates or sought alternatives like regular testing.

Southwest’s senior vice president of operations and hospitality, Steve Goldberg, and Julie Weber, vice president and chief people officer, wrote to staff on Friday that if employees’ requests for an exemption haven’t been approved by Dec. 8, they could continue to work while following mask and distancing guidelines until the request has been reviewed.

The company is giving employees until Nov. 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for an exemption. It will continue paying them while the company reviews their requests, and said it will allow those who are rejected to continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation).”
