United Airlines recently revealed in a memo to emloyees that more than 97 per cent of its U.S.-based workers have been vaccinated for COVID-19. This comes just before a Sept. 27 deadline for staff vaccinations. The U.S.-based airline took a tough stance and required that its 67,000 American employees get vaccinated, or face termination. While six employees have sued United over the mandate, a spokesperson said of the complaint that "at this point we think it's without merit."
On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and Speer discuss United Airlines' vaccine mandate, and whether this kind of a mandate would hold up to legal action in Canada.
