Unions: Judge signs temporary restraining order on vaccine mandate for city workers
Multiple unions say that a state supreme court judge has signed a temporary restraining order on the vaccine mandate for all city workers.
The UFT say this could temporarily block the city from enforcing the mandate, until at least the next hearing on the lawsuit, which is next Wednesday, Sept. 22.
But the city's Department of Education says the order expires before the mandate is scheduled to go into effect on Sept. 27.
"New York City’s education worker vaccine mandate, which has been embraced by the White House, goes into effect on September 27. The court’s action today expires on September 22. There is no delay in the City’s implementation of this vaccine requirement," the DOE said in a statement.
