Rep. Malliotakis Urges Mayor Adams To Reinstate City Workers Fired Due To Vaccine Mandate, After His Lifting Of Mandate For Current Workers


Malliotakis on Lifting of Vaccine Mandate: City Workers Should be Reinstated Immediately

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Today Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), a member of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, released the following statement regarding New York City Mayor Adams lifting the vaccine mandate for current and prospective city workers effective February 10, 2023.
“The reversal of this arbitrary vaccine mandate is something my Republican colleagues and I have long advocated for. Last week, the House passed legislation to end President Biden’s COVID emergency powers and end the vaccine mandate on healthcare workers at federal healthcare facilities. Previously, we’ve passed legislation to end the mandate on our military and won a lawsuit to prevent Biden’s mandate on private employers from taking effect. Thousands of city employees – including law enforcement officers and sanitation workers – have been unfairly stripped of their livelihoods due to this draconian mandate and I urge the City to reinstate their employment immediately.”

For five terms, Congresswoman Malliotakis fought to restore ethics in Albany, expand transit service in her district, improve programs for senior citizens, reform education and improve New York’s economic climate by reducing the tax burden on small businesses and residents. A cornerstone of her tenure was helping her community recover and rebuild following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In addition to advocating for these same issues in Washington, Congresswoman Malliotakis is acutely focused on securing New York’s fair share of federal mass transit funding, which would go towards expanding transportation services and easing traffic congestion, while also championing public safety by supporting our nation’s law enforcement officers.
