Southwest Airlines CEO 'not in favor' of vaccine mandates
Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly said Tuesday that he opposes requiring his employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but acknowledged that his company must mandate the shot to comply with the Biden administration's federal contractor rules.
The Dallas-based airline announced last week that all employees must be vaccinated by Dec. 8 due to the Biden administration’s vaccine requirement for federal contractors. Southwest has large contracts with the U.S. government to transport government officials and supplies.
