Vaxx Mandate STRIKES US Nuclear Arsenal

Written By BlabberBuzz | Monday, 25 October 2021 05:15

The New Mexico lab that produced the world’s first nuclear bomb has lost 185 employees as a vaccine mandate deadline expired on Oct. 22, according to a lawsuit filed against the operator of the facility on that same day.

An additional 153 employees at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) were placed on leave without pay or are using vacation pay because they obtained a religious exemption, the lawsuit reveals. Twenty-six of the employees were reportedly granted medical exemptions.

The lawsuit cited an article by Los Alamos Reporter, which says that the numbers were disclosed during an all-hands meeting at the lab on Oct. 21.

The lab employs nearly 14,000 workers. Two-thirds of all the work at the facility focus on weapons programs. Nearly one in five of the employees at the lab hold Ph.D. degrees. Triad National Security LLC operates the complex as a contractor for the federal government.

Approximately 85 percent of the LANL workforce had been vaccinated against the coronavirus as of Aug. 23, when management announced a vaccine mandate, according to an internal email. The FDA granted full approval for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on that date.

“Defendants have approved religious exemptions for some employees, including plaintiffs and others not before the Court, but have given with one hand and then taken back with the other by imposing a blanket, one-size-fits-all accommodation that places those employees for whom a religious exemption has been granted on indefinite leave without pay and stripping them of their benefits,” the lawsuit states. “Defendants’ actions amount to a constructive termination.”

LANL did not grant an exemption to employees who have acquired natural immunity to COVID-19 through prior infection. Several studies show that natural immunity grants similar or better protection against the virus. According to a recent peer-reviewed study while the effectiveness of vaccines dwindles over time, requiring booster shots, natural immunity lasts at least a year.

On Sept. 9, employees with religious exemptions were informed that they would be placed on unpaid leave or “may use vacation leave until an accommodation that will not unduly burden the laboratory or other employees has been identified,” according to a directive cited in the lawsuit.

On Sept. 20, LANL extended the vaccine mandate to employees working from home. The lab operated throughout the pandemic, with employees donning masks and social distancing. A judge in a separate lawsuit on Oct. 15 rejected a request by 114 employees of the lab to block the vaccine mandate.
