    Why should we be forced to shove a chemical into our bodies that is killing people. The cdc won’t give those numbers though. Who will pay my medical bills, ensure my family is provided for, etc…should something happen. We have worked everyday since this pandemic started with proper protocols, yet the passengers are not being forced to wear masks or get vaccinated. I feel this is a government over reach and an invasion to someone’s personal body. This union needs to step up and fight on behalf of its members. People should have a choice what to put in their body. Then there’s termination if you don’t get it??‽ makes no sense theres no light duty options. This vaccine has not been studied long enough. Thank you.
