JOIN OTHER COMPANIES
The announcement was made just today, Friday, after Delta Air Lines announced earlier this year that it would require all new employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, for greater health security.
However, United Airlines is not the first company to make this request in a demanding way, previously at a lower or higher level Walmart, Facebook, Uber, Google, Twitter, DoorDash and many more had already done it.
United Airlines will require vaccinations: SET DEADLINE
There is even a date for all employees to comply with this requirement to have their vaccination card, they have said that it will be five weeks after the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA, for their sus) announces the full approval of a COVID-19 vaccine or five weeks after September 20, whichever comes first.
Through a memorandum, the CEO of United, Scott Kirby, and the president of United, Brett Hart, announced the new modality that all workers must comply with as a standard of health for the well-being of all.
THEY OFFER ADDITIONAL PAY DAY
They wrote verbatim: “For those employees who are already vaccinated, and for those employees who get vaccinated and upload their records to Flying Together before September 20, we will offer an additional payday.”
And they added: “We know that some of you will not agree with this decision to require the vaccine for all United employees. But we have no greater responsibility to you and your colleagues than to ensure your safety when you are at work, and the facts are very clear: everyone is safer when everyone is vaccinated. ” Filed Under: United Airlines Will Require Vaccinations
THEY SEEK TO AVOID MORE DEATHS
The executives’ decision heralds concerns about the increase in Delta variant cases, which they said: “In the past 16 months, Scott has sent dozens of letters of condolence to the families of United employees. who have died of COVID-19 ”.
Among their objectives is that there are no more tragic cases in the United Airlines ‘family’, for which they reiterated their position: “We are determined to do everything possible to try to prevent another United family from receiving that letter.” Filed Under: United Airlines Will Require Vaccinations
United Airlines will require vaccinations: LOW INFECTION RATES
It was last year that executives from several airlines came together to convince authorities that the lowest rates of infection existed among their employees in an attempt to prove that air travel is safe.
Back then, Kirby said: “At United, but also at our big competitors, our flight attendants have lower COVID infection rates than the general population, which is one of multiple data points that speak to safety at aboard the planes ”.
CNN LAUNCHES EMPLOYEES
The issue of forcing employees to get vaccinated has already had consequences at one of the largest communications companies in the world, after it was reported that CNN fired three employees who violated company policy by reporting to work at offices without be vaccinated against COVID-19.
CNN director Jeff Zucker informed staff of the layoffs in a memo sent Thursday, reminding them that vaccination is mandatory if they go to offices or if they go to field work where they are in contact with other employees. Filed Under: United Airlines Will Require Vaccinations
United Airlines will require vaccines: “ZERO TOLERANCE”
The memo was obtained by The Associated Press after its content was posted on Twitter by CNN reporter Oliver Darcy. The chain did not offer details about the firing, or the workplace of the employees.
“Let me be clear: we have a zero tolerance policy on this,” wrote Zucker, president of news and sports for WarnerMedia, after the controversial decision was released that some disagreed with.
THEY ALSO REQUIRE MOUTH COVERS
Most of CNN’s offices are now open and employees can come to work from there on a voluntary basis, and Zucker noted that more than a third of the workforce has returned. Proof of vaccination status has been left to the honor code, he said, but that could change in the coming weeks.
The CNN director pointed out that masks will be required to be worn in the Atlanta, Washington and Los Angeles offices when not eating, drinking or in an enclosed private space. Even in offices where the use of masks is not mandatory, people should do what is most comfortable for them “without fear of retaliation or judgment by their peers,” Zucker said.

RETURN TO WORK POSTPONED
The CNN network’s memorandum also reported that the return to the offices scheduled for September 7 will be postponed until at least early or mid-October, due to concerns about the new Delta variant.
Other media have made similar decisions due to the rebound in COVID-19. For example, last Thursday, the AP informed its employees that the return scheduled for September 13 has also been postponed. Filed Under: United Airlines Will Require Vaccinations
