On September 9, 2021, President Biden issued a notice that he will sign executive orders mandating vaccines or testing.  He requested that the Department of Labor issue an emergency order requiring large employers (100 employees or more) to mandate a COVID vaccination or weekly testing.  He has also signed an Executive Order mandating all federal employees and contractors get vaccinated against COVID-19, with no exceptions for those who would prefer regular testing. 

IBEW Local 659 has encouraged vaccinations and emphasized member safety.  However, I believe President Biden’s directives conflict with our belief that vaccinations are an individual’s choice.

Local 659 will continue to work with our signatory employers and will demand to bargain over any impacts to our membership that may arise.

Please continue to use safety precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Business Manager Flegel
