A flyer for the event shared on Facebook, invites people to a peaceful protest of the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The rally will be in Dallas at the intersection of Denton drive and Love Field drive. The flyer also states to “follow your individual work rules should you need to obtain time off.”
Many are facing vaccine mandates across the country, where if they fail to vaccinate by a certain date they could face losing their jobs. This rally is full of those who support the employee’s freedom to choose without the threat of losing their job. Many of those interviewed by Right Side Broadcasting, in the video below, are family members of employees as well as some employees themselves. Some are calling on Southwest CEO Gary Kelly to stand up against Biden’s vaccine mandate.
This weekend, Southwest asked the court to reject the effort by the Southwest pilot’s union to temporarily block the vaccine mandate. The current deadline set by Southwest is November 24th. This won’t be the last we hear of this as many are unhappy with the mandate, as they wish to be able to choose for themselves.
