Members of Local 4201,
The Executive Board has been reviewing the mandatory vaccination imposed by American Airlines on October 6th. We recommend that all members who can be vaccinated, to do so in a timely manner to meet American’s deadline of Nov. 24th.
Members that are unable to receive the vaccine due to medical reasons or religious beliefs will be required to submit the forms for an accommodation. American has committed to grant all valid medical and religious accommodations to the members. American has not yet stated the specifics on the accommodations, but it may include the requirement to wear a face mask, regular self-declaration of being well for work and regular testing. American wants all members granted an accommodation to continue to work.
American maintains there will not be a termination done on November 24th for those members that have not vaccinated and received an accommodation. American will contact these members sometime after the 24th to meet and give any options pertaining to the member. American’s intent is not to terminate our members but when and if it happens, we are committed to follow the grievance procedures listed in Article 25 and grieve all terminations.
We continue discussions with our attorney and reviewing all options, this includes filing a lawsuit. If you are interested in joining the lawsuit, please send your full name, address, personal email and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We are committed in doing everything we can to make sure everyone remains employed during this time.
Take care of yourself and each other.
Local 4201 E-Board
