Gainesville city employees won a court battle Wednesday when they were granted a temporary injunction, or a request to refrain from taking a certain action, against an imposed vaccine mandate.
A lawsuit was filed against the city on Aug. 26 after city officials imposed a vaccine mandate or risk termination for all city employees. 200 plus employees were against the mandate.
“We are here today to make it clear that we are going to stand for the men and women who are serving,” DeSantis said. “We are not going to let people be fired because of a vaccine mandate.”
“The strongest argument we have is the Florida constitution’s strong right to privacy, which includes a right to complete bodily autonomy and a right to refuse unwanted medical procedures, so that the city of Gainesville cannot treat its employees’ bodies like property,” Childers said.
Gainesvil le City Employees Granted Temporary Injunction Against Vaccine Mandates
The temporary injunction states that the city shall not enforce the vaccine mandate policy or terminate or discipline any employees for failure to comply with the vaccine mandate.
Sgt. Tristan Grunder, Gainesville Fraternal Order of Police president, was relieved at the news of the injunction.
“We are happy that this has been put on pause for the future and allows us to have more time, because I think one of the big issues that we’ve had all along is that this felt very rushed,” Grunder said. “It felt like the decision was very emotional and maybe not super thought out by the commissioners.”
Austin Bush, a firefighter/EMT at Gainesville Fire Rescue and one of the plaintiffs to the lawsuit, said he and some of his fellow firefighters could not be happier about the injunction being granted. He was against the mandate because he wanted more time to consider his options with his family, he said.

I live and work in Pennsylvania for a pretty big company that covers the east coast. I asked my boss today if we have to get vaccinated or submit to weekly tests and he stated the company has filed a lawsuit and as of now we don’t have to comply. The day after Biden announced the vaccine mandates local news and newspaper had quite a few stories about nurses and prison guards protesting the vaccines , then the next day all the negative stories about protests / pissed off workers were gone.

Oh my gods, I was just about to start a thread, but then saw this one.
I have just one year ago graduated with a bachelor of early childhood and am now working in the most amazing centre bases on a ten acre farm. I love my job and couldn't think of a better place to work with the most amazing team of kaiako *teachers*. We are currently in our first week of level 3 lockdown after five weeks at level four, so we are not open as we have no tamariki *children* of essential workers needing child care.
There is been a lot of talk lately mandatory vaccines for essential workers. At the moment people are not allowed to ask if a teacher has been vaccinated, but there is now talk about whether teachers should also be vaccinated.
Now I am not anti vaccine against any of the previous vaccines (although I chose not to have my own children vaccinated). But I am however anti these current covid injectables.
I am incredibly scared that I will be forced to choose between my dream job and being subjected to an injection that I against and terrified of.
My centre manager and owner know how I feel about vaccines in general and that I have no intention of getting this covid injection, but I am extremely anxious all the same.
There is an article in our national news paper which I will link, but I cant read it cos I dont subscribe on line. It is about the rights of humans for mandatory vaccines. www.nzherald.co.nz... GABER4/
Bugger for some reason the link is not working.
Just searched on duckgo and found similar article or maybe the same removed article. So here is the link to it. Before I was just using google.
Now that have had my rant, I will read the test of your opening thread, hoping it will give me some relief to my worries. Now I know I am in a different country than most of you but hoping to get some answers.
Kia pai to po. Have a good night.
I recopied the link as I still had the page open,
Then i went to look at another news article. When I tried to find the article I just linked it appears to have disappeared. Weird maybe they dont want people to know reasons they can refuse the injection.

WHAT?? CNN didn't say it, so it "ain't true"? Is that what you are saying? It seems that way to me. Please, explain since this has been going around for weeks now about these entities getting a pass on mandatory vax.
