Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments on Vaccine Mandate – TCA Remains Hopeful



Earlier this afternoon, the Supreme Court finished hearing oral arguments in the case against the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for workers at companies with over 100 employees or for those companies to implement a weekly testing regime. The disruption this ETS would have on the trucking industry cannot be understated, and the Supreme Court will now weigh the arguments made by both the business community and the government.

While we will not know the ultimate outcome of today’s oral arguments until a ruling is made, we remain hopeful that the Court will quickly strike down the ETS or reimpose the administrative stay in advance of the upcoming enforcement deadline.

TCA remains dedicated to fighting this ETS and working with the coalition to defeat this unnecessary standard and will continue to keep you updated as further information arises.

Thank you,

David Heller
