U.S. Postal Service warns vaccine rules could affect deliveries

WASHINGTON, Nov 10 (Reuters) – The U.S. Postal Service raised concerns on Wednesday that the Biden administration’s new rules requiring large employers to require vaccinations or weekly COVID-19 testing could result in “high levels of absenteeism” and affect deliveries.

The 644,000-employee USPS said in a financial filing that complying with the new vaccine and testing rules known as an Emergency Temporary Standard, or ETS, “will be extremely challenging to implement and administer during the height of our peak season, particularly given its expedited schedule.”

Compliance, the USPS warned, “could result in labor challenges and high levels of absenteeism.” Some employees could opt to leave, which “could cause significant business disruptions, and could adversely impact service performance and result in lower mail volume and revenue.”

Having rights should not apply to stupid, stubborn people. Just get the vaccine (it’s proven it does work!!) so we can ALL put this virus behind us.

Interesting definition of “rights” you have there. Perhaps the vaccines will get the world out of this problem but then these are the same people who did do the work while others sheltered at home long before vaccines became available.

Please take a break from cnn! You sound totally brainwashed

I’m just waiting for them to let us stop wearing masks at work. 3 shots and still having to wear the damn mask

The USPS should join the many lawsuits that have been filed against the legality of forced vaccination. The economic impact of forcing employees out of work because they can think for themselves and make their own decisions will be far, far worse than than the Covid panic.
