FDNY Union Challenges Mayor’s Vaccine Mandate

Monday morning on FOX and Friends, Ainsley Earhardt interviewed Andrew Ansbro, president of the FDNY Uniformed Firefighters Association, who discussed the double standard Mayor Adams is imposing for the COVID vaccine mandate. While athletes and performers are permitted to return to work unvaccinated, New York City heroes and first responders are being fired for being unvaccinated. 

Ansbro pointed out the fact that when the lights went out at the start of the pandemic, first responders remained committed to their work, keeping the city safe. Ansbro questions why it appears the Mayor believes it’s essential to get performers back to work, but not first responders. While he is glad to see the city reopening, Ansbro explained that it cannot be open for some, while others are placed on unemployment lines, noting that the problem has become a civil rights issue where there are different rules for different people. 


Ansbro concluded his interview noting that two years ago officials were hopeful for natural immunity, and now that we have surpassed that point he is questioning whether these vaccine mandates will ever come to an end.
