Pasco Councilmember and Hanford Workers Leads Huge Vax Lawsuit
Several hundred Hanford workers and some from PNNL (Pacific Northwest National Labratory) are part of a major lawsuit filed over vaccination requirements.
BIDEN'S MANDATE APPLIES TO HANFORD WORKERS AND SUBCONTRACTORS
Hanford workers are already under a mandate from the Federal government for Federal workers and subcontractors who are required to get the COVID vaccine.
However, many of the workers are resisting. Pete Serrano is a Pasco City Councilman and has been one of the activists since 'day one' resisting COVID mandates that have infringed upon citizens rights.
Serrano works as an attorney for the U.S. Dept. of Energy at Hanford. The suit is filed in part with the Silent Majority Foundation which is a local group supporting and fighting for the United States Constitutional and theological foundation, according to their mission statement.
SUIT ARGUES IF WORKERS LOSE JOB OVER MANDATE HANFORD WON'T BE ABLE TO SAFELY OPERATE, IF AT ALL
A wide variety of workers are part of the plaintiffs, from Hanford Patrol workers, to nuclear operators, managers, PNNL staff and more. Serrano and others involved argue that the hundreds of non-vaccinated workers who could lose their jobs would jeopardize the site's ability to operate safely, let alone function at all.
It's estimated at least 300 or more workers could lose their jobs between Nov. 22 and January, depending upon who their employer is. Some Federal workers have seen their deadline extended to January, others could be gone in less than a week.
According to the suit, the mandate violates 17 clauses of the U.S. Constitution, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) breach of contract and wrongful termination just to name a few.
It also argues that those persons who are found to have natural immunity (usually from already having COVID and recovering) should be exempt.
The suit names DOE Hanford Manager Brian Vance and Joe Biden as the Defendants.
According to KEPR-19 CBS TV, the DOE and Hanford have declined to comment on the suit.
