In a video update posted to the union’s website on Tuesday, Cornell Beard, District 70 president and directing business representative, urged union members to fill out information that would soon be coming out to them from the unnamed attorney. Beard also told members to document any correspondence with the company regarding the vaccine and notify the union if any exemption requests are denied.
