Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Union Says ‘Dozens’ of State Troopers Have Resigned Over Coming Mass. Vaccine Mandate”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A judge in the Massachusetts Superior Court shot down a suit filed by the State Police Assoc. of Massachusetts (SPAM) to delay implementation of the coming vaccine mandate, which would apply to all state employees including those officers.

The union representing over 1,800 troopers in the state responded to the judge’s ruling in a press release published on Saturday, saying it is “unfortunate that the Governor and his team have chosen to mandate one of the most stringent vaccine mandates in the country with no reasonable alternatives.”

The union’s lawsuit, filed last week, said the mandate’s deadline was too short for them to “negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment.” and could do “irreparable harm,” and they wanted more time to “negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment.”

In the statement responding to the court’s ruling, SPAM president Michael Cherven said that “to date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork” ahead of the October 17 mandate.

In their report, the AP cites a spokesperson in stating that “no resignations had been received Friday.”
