Just saw the email that they are enforcing the mandate policy anyways. They gave exceptions to some states that had laws against it. Odd how they never mentioned the Texas EO that bans the practice for any company that operates or is HQ’d in the state. Plenty of other states with EO’s that ban it also. No mention of those either. Wonder how long it’s going to take for those AG’s to file charges. What’s your thoughts?

Come on Stankey, let the firings begin. Get rid of those nuts. Make AT&T great again.
So which is it Stank? You’re obligated to to follow Gov mandate because you have gov contracts? Or is it you’re a private company making the business risk/reward choice? Now the Supreme Court had spoken snd the risk to your gov contract is all but eliminated, you have now just opened the door to massive massive legal liability from any and every vaccine harm done in the future for decades. Every single vaccinated employee has signed waiver of liability under duress. Political protection tides turn, this one will too. I pray for you and your family when they day of reckoning comes.
This company does not see Abbott’s EO as law. It does see Montana, Arizona, Tennessee as having a law passed through their legislatures. This is another false front by Abbott where he claims he addressed the problem, but his solution does not. Fire Abbott, hire Don Huffines in the March 1 primary.
When you are out of lies and conspiracies, you come up with "stealing horses". What a nut job!
T leadership threatens people's employment and their ability to feed their family over vaccine mandates. In the old west, the penalty for stealing horses was hanging. Why? Because horses were needed to do work and feed your family. Figure it out.
Man. Lots of hateful comments on here. If someone chooses not to get vaxed, that’s up to them and their Dr. You shouldn’t force folks to do things they don’t want. I think many of you need some counseling.
Its hard to understand because those people are so caught up in lies and conspiracies.
Let me sum it up. Your fired!
Everybody is commenting all over the place, so let me sum it up..
ATT is a private company, except when it's not...
It is a publicly traded and publicly owned corporation.
It's telco companies are all public utilities.
Receives some funding from government taxation and the Universal Services Fund.
Provides access to the government (NSA) for them to store meta-data on EVERY telephone call (landline or cellphone) placed or received in the USA, and access for the government to listen electronically for keywords deemed "dangerous" by the government as well as provides access to the NSA to record and store the contents of EVERY email (along with GTE, Century Telecom, NYNEX, Bell Atlantic and every other telco utility).
Is regulated by every Public Utility Commission in every city that they own the telco franchise.
This is just a small and well known list to show that it is a private company, except when it is not.
It's beyond me and all over this board. Folks read the news but yet don't understand what they are reading. The mandate is blocked yes that is correct. But private companies can still create and enforce their own policy and procedure. Why is this so hard to understand?
Still a private corporation that can set it's own conditions for employment.
As we stated to you last week when all of the mouth breathers got so excited.
So, roll up your sleeve or hit the bricks.
What: last week's Supreme Court ruling means for our Vaccine Policy
To: All U.S.-based employees
You may have heard about the Supreme Court ruling last week putting a hold on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine mandate for employers with more than 100 employees.
While that ruling means that the government cannot require vaccine mandates for employers at this time, it did not diminish the right of private companies to enforce their own. Therefore, our policy is still in effect and will be enforced for both managers and union-represented employees in all states except for those where it is prohibited by law. Currently, those states are Arizona, Montana and Tennessee. Employees in these states will hear from us soon on their specific impact and next steps.
AT&T protecting workers and their families. Let the malcontents go elsewhere to spread their lies and conspiracies. Yay!
"So when did AT&T go from being a public company to a private company?"
AT&T is not part of the government.
Keep whining and see if that change anything. At some point, you gotta be sick and tired of listening to yourself.
So when did AT&T go from being a public company to a private company?
This has nothing to do with political affiliation.
Let me be clear: AT&T only cares about its own self interest, and it just so happens that vaccinating employees saves them more money. Some HR lap-bi--h crunched some numbers and presented it to the executives.
You can croak from Covid tomorrow and HR will just write you off like a piece of toilet paper being flushed down the toilet, because that's what you are to them.
I'm all for vaccines, but don't even assume for a second AT&T is doing this because they ACTUALLY care about your health.
Vaccination mandate is 2021. We have new year and testing mandate is taking over. Whatever new trend is, it is because of big pharma. They will come up with new tricks to have this ball rolling. And as long as they rule we will never conquer pandemic.
Politics have nothing to do with it. The rights of a business to mandate a vaccine for their employees goes back to the 1800's. It was challenged once in the early 1900's and was upheld, just as it will be when it's challenged again this year.
republican states believe in the rights of businesses to do as they please except when they don't. Kind of like everything else with that party.
So nobody really thinks TX will double down on what a company based there has a right to do.
I think we have our layoff pool this year.
Long history with this corporation of doubling down on bad decisions. I’m ok with it, my big pharma stock is performing well . Just here for the $$.
