New York City Strikes Deal With 4 Workers Unions Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate



New York City announced agreements Thursday with four unions over the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all municipal employees, including on exemption requests and leave policies.

The unions — DC 37, Teamsters Local 237, Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association Local 831, and SEIU Local 300 — collectively represent approximately 75,000 employees, excluding members employed at the Department of Education or NYC Health+Hospitals.

Around 92% of city workers under the mandate are vaccinated, including 90% of EMS, 79% of firefighters, 85% of sanitation workers, and 85% of NYPD employees.

Without a mandate in effect, the Department of Corrections remains at 63% vaccinated.
