A group of at least 600 employees of the tech giant Google opposed in a collective letter the company’s decision to vaccinate all its workers against the coronavirus.CNBC reported, citing internal company documents.
Previously, the White House had reported that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which is part of the The United States Department of Labor ordered all companies based in the country with a staff of more than 100 people to vaccinate their employees against Covid-19.
This must occur no later than January 4, 2022. In response, at least 600 employees of the Google company requested in a collective letter to the management of the company to eliminate the requirement to be vaccinated and propose another one “inclusive”.
In the letter, the workers also urge
“speak out against the lawsuit” no longer retract the decision not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. According to CNBC,
Google required more than 150,000 employees to provide information on whether or not they had been vaccinated by December 3.
“Vaccines are key to our ability to ensure a safe return to offices for everyone and minimize the spread of Covid-19 in our communities.”said Google’s vice president of security,
According to Rackow,
employees may refuse to take the drug for religious reasons or medical circumstances, permission not to be vaccinated will be granted to those individuals individually.
OSHA’s order was temporarily suspended by a Court of Appeals of the North American country.
