PA CORRECTIONS OFFICERS ASSOCIATION FIGHTING VAX MANDATE

The Pennsylvania State Corrections Officers Association is criticizing Governor Wolf’s recent COVID vaccination and testing policy.  The association released a statement saying the mandate is a slap in the face to the thousands of workers who’ve already contracted the virus working in horrible conditions over the course of the pandemic.  The letter also states when vaccine priority was asked for corrections employees in January they went ignored until late March, and many contracted the virus between that time.  Wolf responded saying the union exists to protect its employees, and their opposition to an initiative to stop the spread of COVID-19 is extremely disappointing.
