United Responds to Florida’s New Covid-19 vaccination requirement
November 30, 2021
Members living and based in Florida may be aware of a recent law passed by the state regarding exemptions for vaccination requirement. This has opened up a number of questions from Members as to how, of if, this new law changes the current Vaccination requirements in practice at United.
United is subject to Federal Executive Order 14042, and as a covered contractor must ensure all covered contractor employees are fully vaccinated subject to only certain limitations under federal law. Federal law supersedes any contrary State or local law ordinance. In short, the company advises that the Florida Law does not apply to United or any of its employees, including Flight Attendants.
If you have additional questions, please contact your supervisor for assistance.
