City workers, elected officials calling for restoration of jobs lost due to vaccine mandate
Unvaccinated city workers rallied alongside elected officials outside City Hall on Wednesday calling for those who lost their jobs due to their vaccination status to get their jobs back now that the mandate has been lifted.
Council Member Vickie Palladino joined workers who lost their jobs last August due to their vaccination status to call on local officials to help them get their jobs back.
Although the mandate has been lifted requiring city workers to get their vaccine, many New Yorkers who were fired in August of last year are still unemployed.
Palladino announced a plan to try and prohibit changes of terms and conditions of employment during a state disaster emergency, so that union contracts are not changed.
