City of Charlotte workers including policemen and women and Charlotte firefighters and the UE150 have told city leaders that a vaccine should be the choice of the individual. The letter to the city does say that the organizations do support and encourage workers to get the shot, but goes on to say “Each employee’s health and beliefs are unique and this vaccine should be a discussion between them and their medical provider, not elected officials.”

A mandate has not gone in to effect for employees as of yet, but they are being asked to show “vaccination status”.

Although city officials in Charlotte have offered a cash incentive for those who get the shot, Mayor Vi Lyles says that over 50% of workers have not received it.

Chime in. Do you agree with the letter?
