The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on COVID Vaccination and Testing. The ETS, which does apply to the Postal Service, was officially filed in the Office of the Federal Register on Nov. 4.

The Federal Register notice will invite interested stakeholders to submit comments. OSHA is seeking comment on all aspects of this ETS and on whether OSHA should adopt it as a final standard.

NALC has begun reviewing the ETS, including its impact on the Postal Service and its employees.
