Unions are going to be hit with a wave of members asking for them to defend the member’s resistance to mandatory vaccinations based on religious grounds.

The folks behind the blog ”Employment and Labor Insider,” which is aimed at getting employers ready to deal with employee and union problems, put together a post entitled, “Vaccination Accommodation: Is That Religious Request Sincere?” It outlines the steps and questions the typical employer is going to demand the employee answer before it grants a religious objection. Check it out and walk the employee through them before s/he gets deeply into the dispute.
