Congratulations to the members at Guardian Angels nursing home on winning a one-time $200 bonus from the employer for getting the COVID-19 vaccine! Our Union has taken a strong position that the COVID-19 vaccine should be voluntary for all members. This principle of voluntarism is the rule in the U.S. for as long as the vaccine is authorized for “Emergency Use”.
Guardian Angels Nursing Home management offered this one-time bonus to show their encouragement for members to get the vaccine. We applaud the bonus and hope other employers will adopt a similar approach in the near future.
