Over 100 Massachusetts Correctional Officers Fired For Refusing COVID Vaccine

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker's COVID-19 mandate went into effect, leaving 150 Department of Correction employees without their jobs. As of October 17, the 40,000 contractors and workers within the state needed to be 100 percent vaccinated.

Forced Vaccines

The 150 consists of maintenance workers, recreation officers, and prison officers who were all suspended without pay or benefits. A few of them decided to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, while others went for the Moderna or Pfizer.

As of October 27, 362 employees were on track to be suspended, with 130 resigning. There were 11 workers that had been fired. The number is constantly changing, with hearings coming up and some employees getting immunized right before.

Corrections employees started losing their jobs about a week ago after failing to comply with the mandate after five and ten-day suspensions. So far, 94 percent of state workers are in compliance.

Baker stands firmly behind his mandate, stating that it is "perfectly appropriate" because state employees constantly interact with the general public. However, Baker did allow employees to apply for religious or medical exemptions.

So far, though, no one has actually been granted a waiver. All those who fulfilled the requirements were still required to get a vaccine. According to the letters collected by MassLive, waivers "increase workplace safety risks" and pose an "undue hardship," and those who initially were granted waivers had them rescinded.

  1. Mandates for this so called vaccine are unconstitutional therefore illegal so the SCOTUS informed POTUS but you being DOFUS ignored that. I hope the courts help clean your dictatorial thoughts and ways.

  2. " F J B and All his Minions ... the vaccines DO NOT WORK ... just ask the families of those that have died after taking the so-called Vaccines " !

    1. globalists suckered everyone in Gibralter to get their coronavirus scam vaccine and they still had 7,000 cases of their coronavirus scam and 100 died and the other 6,900 recovered .

  3. sick of these political hacks acting like doctors. they can't think for themselves and see even with the wonder shots that they still can get sick. have we all been dumbed down to the point where resistance to these dicatating buttheads is not going to happen? they were elected to manage priorities of tax money stolen from the citizenry, not dicate orders to them on how they are supposed to live. that's what congressional houses are supposed to take care of by process of the legislative system and creating laws. way to much power in one person has been surrendered by legislative branches.

    1. Especially when globalists and globalist puppets; $oro$ and demonrats and rinos and media and usps and teachers and pentagon and their illegal criminal invader voters are exempt from their coronavirus scam vaccine .

    1. globalist puppet $oro$ voter fraud will attempt to appoint/reappoint their globalist puppets; demonrats and rinos .
