Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Today, Governor Baker issued an executive order that Massachusetts state workers must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination on or by October 17. By no means are we agreeing to these terms without negotiation and will continue to fight on your behalf.
Throughout this pandemic, we have played an essential role in transporting frontline workers (police, firefighters, nurses, health care providers, grocery workers, and other vital professions) throughout the state to their jobs.
We are committed to protecting your interests, your safety, and that of your family. We will enter into dialogue with state and MBTA officials, but only if they are prepared to work with us.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your delegate or another member of the e-board.
