NYC’s Department of Education (DOE) employees of different races, cultures and social classes have filed 10 lawsuits against New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in federal court against his vaccination order.
This is the third case against the vaccine order imposed on NYC educators by de Blasio earlier this month.
Members of the multicultural plaintiffs have ethnic backgrounds from China, Nigeria, Colombia, Ecuador and Italy. Their religious beliefs are also diverse.
“Despite this diverse and varied background, one thing is common to all plaintiffs; They firmly believe that their religious and / or medical exemption rights for vaccination have been trampled underfoot by a fraudulent NYC DOE process, ”read a statement from Teachers for Choice, an organization against forced medical mandates.
The lawsuit was filed by Cain v. De Blasio and Attorney Sujata Gibson.
Michael Kane has been a teacher at NYC DOE for over 14 years and the founder of Teachers for Choice.
“I’m going to lose my job any day now because I refuse to take the covid vaccine as a job requirement,” Kane told The Epoch Times on September 2nd.
“The situation is in court, and what I want to know about the education of all my siblings in New York City is that this Wednesday’s hearing, which will be heard in Second Circuit Federal Court, does not restrain us. Keep it up! Teachers for Choice has a lawsuit called Kane vs. De Blasio that will seek its own restraining order in a few days.
The order came into effect on September 27, after being temporarily blocked by a federal judge.
The mayor said Monday that DOE workers must receive their first dose of the Covid-1 vaccine by 5 p.m. on Oct. 1.
“If you don’t get that first dose by Friday, 5 p.m., we’ll assume you’re not coming to work on Monday and you won’t be paid from Monday, and we’ll fill your role with an alternate or alternative employee,” the Democrat said.
The decision raises concerns that there will soon be a shortage of educators. Some unions have called for delays.
Louis Gellermino, an attorney for the United Federation of Teachers, told Fox News that he was considering taking the case to the Supreme Court.
The Epoch Times arrived at the mayor’s office to comment.
