Gov. Ducey: Tucson employee-vaccination rule illegal | Local news – Tucson, Arizona

Tucson, Arizona 2021-10-21 13:00:00 –

Ducey has often had a tough, sometimes hostile relationship with Romero. It only got worse during the pandemic as the Democratic mayor challenged some of the actions of the Republican governor.

In fact, it was a public threat for Romero and her Phoenix counterpart Kate Gagego to pursue Mask’s obligations last year, and eventually Ducey withdrew his directive to thwart such local action. It was decided to do.

The new Tucson policy, approved by a 4 to 3 vote, states that workers who have not been vaccinated by December 1 will be provided with a notice of their intention to terminate their employment. The final decision will be made by the supervisor by December 17th.

This was after Congress adopted a vaccination obligation for more than 4,000 workers in the city in August, with a five-day unpaid suspension penalty.

The move was postponed to September after Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich said the move violated new state law.

But tentatively, Judge Catherine Cooper of the Maricopa County Superior Court invalidated the word. So city officials have begun to figure out how to start implementing vaccine requirements again.

While Ducey is chasing Tucson, he is not pursuing Pima County. Pima County also adopted its own vaccine requirements on Tuesday.
