Chicago’s mayor was met with boos at the annual fundraiser, speaking to those gathered about the vaccine mandate meant to coerce workers into receiving covid shots, as well as reporting their status.

Otherwise, workers would be cut off from receiving a salary.

Since the mandate was announced, in April, and racist mayor Lightfoot informed the Chicago workers that failure to comply would be met with consequences, as she put it, giving no further detail regarding whatever punitive action might be in store for them, there has been a mixed reception of the news.

The Plumbers Union, for one, was in support of this decision and has backed the mayor since.

Surprisingly, those reporting the event said that it was the members of the Plumbers Union who initiated the tirade of name-calling and booing.

The Plumbers Union secretary McCarthy claims that the Plumbers Union had nothing to do with it and voiced his respect for the mayor.

Moreover, he stated that the disapproval was insignificant and that the event was not disrupted in the least, although it’s quite clear that his “downplay” has nothing to do with truth.

The plumbers Union president Majerowicz stated that he did not hear anything either, finding the whole report about the situation incredible and shocking.

Chicago mayor playing both sides of the field?

Catanzara of the Fraternal Order of Police spoke for Fox New, saying that those working in the crisis management, as well as firefighters and labor unions (presumably not the plumbers), in no way support the mayor’s decision in passing this mandate.

To look back on the mandate, Lightfoot offered an alternative until the year’s end, and permitted workers not to vaccinate, given that they agree to regular testing and from their own pocket.

Regardless, the argument still rages and the mayor is facing a lawsuit.

The lawsuit names 130 workers who are calling for a restraining order.

To be more precise, these workers do not disagree with vaccination, rather with the consequences listed.

As such, they have prompted other workers to confirm their vaccination status.

Furthermore, several representatives of Chicago have attempted to force a special meeting of the City Council, filing a notice wherein they call for a repeal of the mayor’s mandate.

This effort is headed by Silvana Tabares.

To sum up their stance, they, like the mentioned workers, do not have an issue with vaccination, but with the mayor’s strong-arm policy.

The issue is expected to be officially settled on Friday.
