WATCH: Lightfoot warns city workers who defy vaccine mandate will face “consequences”

Chicago’s Mayor warned of “consequences” for those who defy her vaccinate mandate for city workers.

“There will be consequences if people are not complying with what the policy is by October 15th,” Lightfoot warned Friday.

Per ABC7:

City workers are required to send in a copy of their proof of vaccination by the 15th, but the mayor stopped short of saying they would be fired if they don’t. The city continues to negotiate with labor unions.

After a lengthy session with police, the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents the rank-and-file, put out a statement announcing it had negotiated a temporary reprieve in the mandate. The union wrote in a social post: “The Oct 15th deadline, for now, will only deal with an addition of a testing protocol for anyone not vaccinated….There will be no one going into a no pay status on the 15th because of the deadline.”
