LA County Workers Want The COVID-19 Shot Deadline Extended As They Negotiate Exemptions | LAist (Me: Covid-19 does not care about your negotiating time, it strikes when it wants to and kills – all too often)

Union representatives for L.A. County’s 102,000 employees say the Friday deadline for their members to be fully vaccinated is “unreasonable” and a “scare tactic.” They want an extension as they negotiate over a range of issues — including a testing option and broader religious and medical exemptions.

SEIU 721, which represents more than 55,000 workers, also wants the county to allow people who are reluctant to get the shot to get regular tests for the virus instead.

The County CEO’s office said in a statement it could not comment on the specifics of the negotiations but said L.A. “will be in full compliance with all federal and state laws.”
