American Airlines set an official deadline for its Chinese coronavirus vaccine mandate for employees, the Charlotte Observer reported.
According to the Observer, the airline sent an email to all of its U.S. employees on Wednesday telling them they must be fully vaccinated by November 24 or face getting fired.
“To be clear, if you fail to comply with the requirement, the result will be termination from the company,” part of the email said, according to the Hill.
At least 125,000 workers will be subject to American Airlines’ mandate, according to a 2020 workforce demographic report. The company, which is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, already lost more than 30,000 employees in 2020 due to a combination of voluntary employee separations, retirements, and management reductions,
