Postal Service Off the Hook for Vaccine-or-Test Mandate Following Supreme Court Ruling

The U.S. Postal Service will no longer have to implement a mandate for its employees to either receive a vaccine against COVID-19 or regular tests for it after the Supreme Court struck down the Biden administration’s requirement.

The Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued the rule, which applied to employers with at least 100 workers, to promote vaccination rates, arguing it was well within its jurisdiction to protect employees at the workplace. OSHA made clear the rule applied to the Postal Service, which was not otherwise subject to President Biden’s vaccine mandate for the rest of the federal workforce. In a 6-3 decision, the conservative majority on the court said OSHA had overstepped and that COVID-19 was not specifically a workplace risk.

Common Sense Approach

The Postal Service was ignoring President Dumb Ass and silly vaccine well before Supreme Court decision.

I was hoping theyd make it mandatory. I dont care about rights. I’m tired of ppl dying in my district

I am happy that SCOTUS struck down the vaccine mandate. I am about to start working for the USPS this week and I did not want to have to choose between a job and a vaccine. Now I can work at the USPS in peace!
