Two More Unions Agree To State Worker Vaccine Mandate

Two more Illinois unions are agreeing to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Governor J.B. Pritzker announced yesterday that agreements had been reached with the Illinois Nurses Association and the Illinois Federation of Public Employees. The agreements will require nearly 13-hundred more state employees to receive COVID-19 vaccines. State employees who do not get vaccinated or receive an exemption by publicized deadlines will face progressive disciplinary measures.
