Postal service seeks temporary relief from Biden vaccine mandate

Vaccine mandate could affect postal services. Exemption from OSHA mandate sought.

Where: United States

The Facts

The Postal Service has requested a temporary exemption from President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate.

The service argued that a waiver would prevent disruptions and delays in mail delivery.

A letter from Deputy Postmaster General Douglas Tulino to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said that compliance with the new rules “is likely to result in the loss of many employees — either by employees leaving or being disciplined.”

The OSHA mandate will take effect on January 9th. However, citations for violations won’t be issued until February 9th.

The USPS has requested a 120-day extension and the suspension of its obligations under the mandate, long enough to accommodate for the court’s ruling on the legality of the vaccine requirement.
