Judge Rules United Airlines Can Mandate Vaccines for Employees

A Texas federal judge ruled on Monday that United Airlines can mandate its employees be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

In the 15-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman said that the plaintiffs, six United employees, had not established that they would suffer “imminent, irreparable harm” if he did not issue a preliminary injunction against the mandate.

“We’re pleased with the court’s decision today. We know that the best way to keep everyone as safe as we can is for everyone to get vaccinated, as nearly all United employees have chosen to do,” United said in a statement to The Hill.

The ruling is a victory for United, which in early August became the first U.S. airline to require all employees be vaccinated.
