Union Sues Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for State Workers

Published:  September 24, 2021

It was expected that unionized workforces would push back on employer COVID-19 vaccine mandates. A recent example is where the union representing the majority of Massachusetts State Police officers filed a lawsuit attempting to block Governor Baker’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement for state workers. The order requires that all state workers be vaccinated by October 17th.  In their lawsuit filed in the Suffolk County Superior Court, the Massachusetts State Police Association asked that the vaccine mandate be at least delayed, to give the union more time to negotiate.
