One of the American airlines that connected Dubrovnik with New York this summer season has taken a hard line on the vaccination of their staff and has cancelled contracts of 232 employees who didn’t want to get vaccinated for Covid-19.
United Airlines announced on Wednesday that they had laid off 232 employees who had refused the Covid-19 vaccination.
United Airlines was the first airline to introduce a vaccination obligation for employees. And the head of the company, Steve Kirby, announced that 232 of the 67,000 employees refused to be vaccinated.
United Airlines is currently the only major U.S. airline to have resorted to a release process for employees who refuse the vaccine.
Delta Airlines has introduced a monthly commitment of $200 for unvaccinated employees, while American Airlines and Southwest Airlines are taking various measures to motivate employees to vaccinate.
By Wednesday, 90 percent of Delta Airlines employees had been vaccinated.
