NEW YORK CITY, NY – It seems that some people in New York City are beyond frustrated with their garbage piling up, namely because numerous city employees – to include sanitation workers – have pushed back on the city’s vaccine mandate.
Thus, garbage is accumulating, so some residents in the Big Apple decided to deliver the increasing garbage to the source of the problem: Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Sanitation workers aren’t taking too kindly to the imposed mandate crafted by Mayor de Blasio, so they’ve opted to engage in a bit of a work slowdown that is causing some residents to have an ever-expanding amount of garbage accumulating.
Teamsters Local 831 President Harry Nespoli, whose union represents the sanitation workers in the city, was asked what the reason for the work slowdown was, and he candidly replied with “The mandate’s going on.”
“Look, you’re going to have some spots in the city that they feel very strongly about this…I’ll tell you straight out: I disagree with the mandate because of one reason. We have a program in place right now in the department, which is, you get the vaccination or you get tested once a week.”
Under Mayor de Blasio’s implemented order impacting city workers, the option for weekly testing was removed and thus city employees are only left with the option of getting vaccinated.
