What Delta Airlines is doing instead of vaccine mandates

Here is the Delta CEO, Ed Bastian, speaking with Liz Claman on Thursday explaining how his company has chosen to work with employees first, and worry about government mandates later:

Bastian says in the video that Delta will not be seeking to fire employees who seek religious or medical accommodation and wish to continue working unvaccinated:

Bastian acknowledged that there will need to be religious and medical accommodations made for those who wish to remain unvaccinated while avoiding having to threaten employment status.

“By the time we’re done, we’ll be pretty close to fully vaccinated as a company without going through all the divisiveness of a mandate,” he said. “We’re proving that you can work collaboratively with your people, trusting your people to make the right decisions, respecting their decisions and not forcing them over the loss of their jobs.”

Although it seems like Delta is still pushing vaccinations, they’re not mandatory and they’re not imposed with threats of job loss.

Here’s the entire interview:

    Hooray for him. Need more CEOs to stand up for their employees. I work for one who toes the presidential line, and is going to lose employees.
