LA Metro worker shortages due to vaccine mandate

Posted by Easy on Mon Dec 6 21:18:16 2021

The vaccine mandate for LA Metro went into effect on December 1 and since then multiple train and bus lines have had daily notices of reduced service due to "staff issues". Over 40% of union members remain unvaccinated and have been threatened with termination.

More than a quarter of L.A. County Metro employees have yet to show proof that they are vaccinated against COVID-19, despite the transportation authority imposing a recent deadline for workers to get the shots or face possible termination.

The latest figures from Metro indicate that 72% of its employees have shown they were vaccinated. Those numbers, which do not include workers out on leave, are lower among some categories of employees most notably operators and schedule checkers, who reported only a 58% vaccination rate.
