State Corrections Officers Sue Over Vaccine Mandate

The union representing corrections officers in Massachusetts filed a lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court challenging the constitutionality of Gov. Charlie Baker's mandate that almost all state employees get vaccinated against Covid-19, trying the federal judicial system after the State Police Union lost in state court last week.

The Massachusetts Correction officer’s Federated Union argued in its lawsuit that Baker's mandate, which does not include a testing alternative, violates the contract clause of the constitution and unlawfully infringes on union members' rights to decline unwanted medical treatment without losing their job.
