Southwest Airlines workers protest COVID-19 vaccine mandate

The group - including some employees from other airlines - showed up, Monday, with signs calling for 'jobs, not jabs' and 'freedom, not force.'

A small but vocal group of Southwest Airlines employees held a protest outside of the company's corporate headquarters in Dallas Monday with a message: "stop the mandate."

Southwest is one of many companies requiring employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, following the recommendation of the Biden administration for employers with more than 100 employees do so.

But the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association, which represents about 9,000 pilots, is asking a federal court judge to issue a temporary restraining order to stop the airline to move ahead with its Nov. 24 deadline for vaccinations.
