President Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates have been halted, giving businesses freedom to run things in their companies the way they want instead of bowing to government control. The U.S. Navy is following suit, halting vaccine requirements for Newport News Shipbuilding, the world’s only manufacturer of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.
“Huntington Ingalls Industries, the parent company for Newport News Shipbuilding, suspended its federally-enforced coronavirus vaccine mandate after the U.S. Navy ‘confirmed that our contracts do not include a requirement to implement the mandate,’ and some workers threatened to quit,” the Daily Press and WTKR reported.
“Newport News Shipbuilding is the world’s only manufacturer of the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and one of two manufacturers of Virginia and Columbia Class submarines. With 25,000 employees, it is also the Commonwealth of Virginia’s largest industrial employer,” reported Breitbart News.
Originally, the shipyard said all 25,000 employees would be required to be vaccinated by December 8 as a “condition for continue employment.” The deadline was later extended to January 4 with permission from the federal government. The deadline has now been suspended.
HII president and CEO Mike Petters said, “implementation of the federal government’s vaccine mandate has been a complex undertaking,” and that now the “situation has evolved.” He also said, “We have not wanted to lose a single employee to the virus, or to the effect of the mandate.”
Many employees say they “feel tricked” noting that they only got the vaccine because it was required for employment.
