It it's true that the canceled flights are because of a soft strike, then it means that the employees had banded together and discussed this action well in advance, and Southwest's management was completely unaware of it, i.e. people are organizing resistance without the Man knowing about it. Again, if true, this is a major development.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINESMass Flight Cancelations ...SPECULATED TO BE PILOT VAXX STRIKE
At a certain point businesses still have to survive and do what is best for them.
How do people think SWA is feeling right now? These mandates will cripple their business if it continues.
What if other employees from other airlines join in?
Strength is in the numbers.
Imagine if all pilots decided to strike.
'80% of our pilots are ex-military...'
It sounds like many institutions are running similar scripts. Sounds very much like the way my National Guard unit ran it. They mandate, then they give the illusion of dialogue, Q&A, then CDC blah blah, then exemption, then you’re replaceable so get the vaxx, slave.A memo came out from our city health department this morning that all city staff, volunteers, seasonal workers and interns have to get the jab by November 15th. There was the usual appeal to authority, e.g, following guidance from CDC, IDPH and other health care organizations. Then there was the short blurb about sincerely held religious conviction exemptions would be looked at on a case by case basis. Any non-jabbed would need to provide a weekly negative test that employees will need to perform on their own time.
Twenty five minutes later there was a follow up email from the City Manager stating to disregard the prior email and that they are working to form an agreement with the unions. lol
I received a similar email from an educational institution that I teach a course for. I am never on campus but they want me to get the jab or report to the campus for a test every week. I am currently ignoring the emails. Midterms are in two weeks. I am going to get the students through it and tell the college they can kiss my ass. If the kids want to keep coming to my offsite class I will continue to teach it. I doubt they will get credit for it but they seem to be enjoying the class, so who knows?

Wow. So the courts are getting on board too. Once the mark comes there will be no recourse, forget about the laws or any institution protecting people in any way.
The judge essentially went fishing for a legal precedent to justify the decision he wanted to impose all along. But the history of legal decisions is now ample and capacious enough that you can find a necessary “precedent” for any conceivable ruling you intend. If he’d wanted to rule in the plaintiff’s favor, the judge could just as easily have found a firm “precedent” for that — in each situation, his own emotionally based biases and preferences would be the real cause of his ruling, but he would rationalize the ruling to himself and the public as being rooted in facts, reason and “precedent.”U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, declined her lawsuit. The mandate, Maloney said, didn’t violate her fundamental rights and pointed to a 1905 Supreme Court ruling.
“This Court must apply the law from the Supreme Court: Jacobson essentially applied rational basis review and found that the vaccine mandate was rational in ‘protect[ing] the public health and public safety,’” Maloney said in his order.
“The Court cannot ignore this binding precedent.”
