Detroit-The Detroit automaker is requesting that approximately 153,000 factory employees represented by the American Auto Workers Federation voluntarily submit their Covid-19 vaccination status.

According to a joint coronavirus working group composed of union leaders and representatives of General Motors, Ford Motor and Stellattis (formerly Fiat Chrysler) agreed at a meeting on Monday night, the company and the union agreed to “voluntarily and confidentially disclose” vaccination status. . A joint statement issued by the American Auto Workers Union on Tuesday.

The voluntary submission process is one step lower than Ford and General Motors requiring non-union salaried employees to submit their vaccination status. On the other hand, Stellattis has requested salaried employees to submit their immunization status voluntarily. Both Ford and Stellatis require salaried employees to be vaccinated. General Motors has not yet announced a vaccine authorization.

The American Auto Workers Union encourages members to be vaccinated, but does not support compulsory vaccinations for workers. Instead, the union relies on its more than 400,000 members to personally choose to be vaccinated.

Brian Rosenberg, spokesperson for the American Auto Workers Union, said on Tuesday that the union’s position on authorization has not changed.

UAW Chairman Ray Curry has previously stated that the union will “open up” to discuss and investigate the vaccinations of UAW members. The union said it did not track the vaccination rates of its members, most of whom worked in factories in person for most of the pandemic.

Curry told the report in August that the union encourages its members to be vaccinated, but hopes to respect the wishes of workers who may have medical, religious or personal objections.

UAW investigating members followed the Biden government’s suspension of its vaccination and testing requirements for private companies, after the Federal Court of Appeals suspended the rule pending review.

Rothenberg said the union will continue to oversee Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards and legal cases. He told CNBC in an email that the union will have to see how these requirements will affect the union’s more than 700 contracts.

On Tuesday, the Biden administration asked the Federal Court of Appeals to immediately cancel the order to stop its Covid vaccine and testing requirements, and warned that delaying the implementation of the policy would lead to loss of life and increase the number of hospitalizations.
