I have an acknowledgment form that I came up with. I will be sending this the meeting tomorrow to try and get it approved. I know no one will sign it but I want the thought out there. How can I post on here for all to see?

Now that is something that state C.O.’s can do. You are correct, safety of employees is a mandatory bargaining issue. 288.150

How can they vote to force us to get the vaccine if we currently have a CBA doesn’t this have to be negotiated. Are we considering seeking legal action against the state if they attempt to force this.
