Workers Right to Work Without Discrimination on Vaccine Status
Monday, October 4, 2021, the Utah Business and Labor Interim Committee are meeting up to discuss
“Worker Covid 19 vaccine and testing.”
“The committee will discuss President Biden’s recent announcement to require all employers with 100+ employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require unvaccinated workers to be tested weekly for COVID-19.”
If this doesn’t send chills down your spine, it should. We are ALL potential workers and if something like this becomes law. We will no longer be able to get a job based on our skills only.
URGENT CALL TO ACTION
We must show up in great numbers at the Utah State Capitol on Monday, October 4th.
The committee meeting starts at 9:00 am in the Room 30 House Building.
They will try to pull a fast one and make us think the meeting is going to be virtual, however, if we show up at 7 am and wait for the doors to open, they will let us in.

We encourage the following:
Signs (for example Job skills, not jab status)
“I am more than a vaccination card”
Carpooling with a group of friends. The more the merrier!
If you cannot attend in person, you can still make a huge difference by:
Submitting a public comment.
You can also call the Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel at 801-538-1032.
I have the Agenda linked in this post above and you can see for yourself what they are going to discuss. It is imperative that we start flooding this committee with emails and phone calls.
It is most important to show up in NUMBERS on Monday to show them that We, the People, will not stand for this tyrannical law.
For those of you going on Oct 4 to advocate for workers rights:
Please note that there are a few rules that govern interim meetings –
(1) Room capacity is determined by fire code.
If people exceed room capacity, they will open an overflow room on-site, usually not near the hearing room. This is ok! Because . . .
Your physical presence will be noted (important) *and* you can still comment via Zoom on your phone from overflow – if you register now!
This way you are both physically present (they will know in the chamber how many people appeared in person) and you will still be able to offer public comment because you can comment via Zoom on your phone from the overflow room. (So long as you registered to do so ahead of time.)
It’s a win-win.
(2). For those who make it into the meeting room – be aware that the chair (by law) can clear the meeting room if he perceives a “disturbance.”
