Southwest Airlines workers are getting sick of the vaccine mandates

Looks like pilots at Southwest Airlines are sick of the forced vaccination policy that the airline recently implemented in response to pressure from the White House:

Here is a description of the situation based on one pilot’s comments:

Essentially, the union cannot organize or even acknowledge the sickout, because doing so would make it an illegal job action. Years ago, Southwest and its pilots had a rough negotiation, and the union would not even let the pilots internally discuss the possibility of working-to-rule (which would have slowed Southwest to a crawl).

But at the moment the pilots don’t even have to talk to each other about what they’re doing. The anger internally - not just among pilots but other Southwest workers - is enormous. The tough prior negotiations notwithstanding, Southwest has a history of decent labor relations, and workers believe the company should stand up for them against the mandate. Telling pilots in particular to comply or face termination has backfired.

Are sickouts and work-to-rule slowdowns a side effect of coerced vaccination policies?

Will the White House response be to blame the workers and call in the FBI to target them as “terrorists”?

Will Biden succeed in pushing the US economy back into recession as millions of workers get fired and work stoppages continue to grow?

Yes, critical transportation systems are already overloaded.

Applying the mandates to truckers and cargo workers could be a catastrophe.

We are facing multiple Biden administration caused crises in this country right now.

There was a poll out last week that had the idiot in the White House at 38% approval.

How stupid do you have to be to be in that 38%?

Fox is doing a story right now about energy prices this winter…guess what we’ll all be paying more.

Well…at least that evil pipeline with all those evil jobs has been closed…and Joe did beg OPEC to increase their production, while he ruined our energy independence status that Trump brought us up to.

Yes, empty shelves and high fuel prices are in the forecast.

Biden’s mandate boondoggle could push the economy into a serious recession given all the other problems.

The Fox story was about natural gas…clean energy that America has in abundance…production in Pennsylvania is up…but three pipelines that could be getting that gas to the people who use it have been canceled…I don’t know who canceled them but the people trying to stay warm in a cold Pennsylvania winter are going to pay.

…hopefully mostly Philly? :sunglasses: :tumbler_glass:

Yes, US wholesale natural gas prices have doubled since this time last year.

Reports from China are that it is preparing for a major COVID outbreak, which could shutdown factories and ports.

Vaxist-caused work stoppages and mass firings are just one more problem.

This successful job action is only the beginning and hopefully the tipping point in the struggle against mandates.

Reminds me of Kayleigh. Such passion!

He banned some passengers from china, but not all. Which was a good move.

But the virus hit our shores prior to those bans, then from europe after those bans.
