Reportedly, Boeing Co. (BA) announced that it will require its 125,000 U.S. employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8 under an executive order issued by President Joe Biden for federal contractors.
“Boeing is requiring its U.S.-based employees to either show proof of vaccination or have an approved reasonable accommodation (based on a disability or sincerely held religious belief) by Dec. 8,” stated Boeing.
Over 5,000 Boeing employees are in Texas, where Republican Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order barring any COVID-19 vaccine mandates by any entity or private employers.
“Due to the Texas EO, the Boeing vaccination requirement announced today does not apply to local sites immediately. However, once these sites become covered under the Biden EO, we expect that they will subject to the vaccination requirement,” a Boeing spokeswoman stated.
Last month, the White House announced Dec. 8 as the deadline for employees of federal contractors last month and the requirements are expected to cover millions of employees. Major U.S. airlines have also agreed to meet the deadline imposed on federal contractors, including JetBlue Airways Corp, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines Co, and Alaska Airlines, as has aircraft parts manufacturer Spirit AeroSystems.
