英斯利本月早些时候发布了一项行政命令,要求公立大学的州雇员、卫生保健工作者、K-12雇员以及教职员工在10月18日前完全接种疫苗。拒绝或未获得医疗或宗教豁免的人将面临解雇。

州长因强制接种疫苗被起诉The union representing Washington state employees is suing Gov.Jay Inslee over his requirement that they are fully vaccinated in order to keep their jobs.

代表华盛顿州雇员的工会起诉州长杰伊·英斯利要求他们完全接种疫苗以保住工作。

The Washington Federation of State Employees late last week filed an unfair labor practice complaint in Thurston County Superior Court.The union,which represents about 47,000 state workers,claims the Inslee administration failed to bargain in good faith over the mandate.

华盛顿州雇员联合会上周晚些时候向瑟斯顿县高等法院提交了一份不公平劳动行为的投诉。代表大约47,000名州工人的工会声称,英斯利政府未能真诚地就强制令进行讨价还价。

Inslee earlier this month issued an executive order requiring state employees,health care workers,K-12 employees and faculty and staff at public universities to be fully vaccinated by Oct.18.Those who refuse and do not obtain a medical or religious exemption face dismissal.

英斯利本月早些时候发布了一项行政命令,要求公立大学的州雇员、卫生保健工作者、K-12雇员以及教职员工在1018日前完全接种疫苗。拒绝或未获得医疗或宗教豁免的人将面临解雇。

A separate order from Inslee that took effect last week requires everyone ages 5 and up to wear a mask indoors in all public settings.

英斯利的另一项命令于上周生效,要求所有5岁及以上的人在所有公共场所都必须戴上口罩。

The lawsuit says the deadline for people to make a decision is actually much closer.The union says in order for a person to be considered fully vaccinated by Oct.18,they would have to receive a second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine—or a single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine—by Oct.4.That,in turn,would require a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer by Sept.6.

诉讼称,人们做出决定的最后期限实际上更近了。工会表示,为了让一个人在1018日之前完全接种疫苗,他们必须在104日之前接种第二剂 Moderna 或辉瑞疫苗,或者一剂强生疫苗。反过来,这就需要在96日前服用第一剂现代化药物或辉瑞制药。

The union in a hearing scheduled for Friday before Thurston County Superior Court Judge Erik Price will ask for a preliminary injunction to suspend Inslee's order.

工会将在周五举行听证会,听证会将在瑟斯顿县高等法院举行,法官 Erik Price 将要求最高初步禁制令暂缓英斯利的判决。

The WSFE also wants the judge to permanently bar Inslee's mandate as it is written and deem it an"unconstitutional impairment"to its collective bargaining agreement with the state.

WSFE 还希望法官永久禁止 Inslee 的授权,因为它是书面的,并认为这是一个"违宪的损害",它的集体谈判与国家。

"For example,because of the uncertainty surrounding the exemptions and accommodations and the shortness of time,employees pressed to decide to get vaccinated may be required to either subordinate matters of conscience or have a serious adverse reaction to the vaccine because of a medical disability,"the lawsuit states.

"例如,由于豁免和住宿条件的不确定性以及时间短暂,被迫决定接种疫苗的员工可能被要求从属于良知问题,或者由于医疗残疾对疫苗产生严重的不良反应,"诉讼书中写道。

WFSE President Mike Yestramski in an email to members wrote that the lawsuit was prompted by Inslee's rejection of union proposals about how the mandate would be managed.

工会联合会主席迈克·耶斯特拉姆斯基在给会员的一封电子邮件中写道,英斯利拒绝工会关于如何管理强制令的建议,从而引发了这场诉讼。

"This lawsuit is about respecting our union's right to bargain and ensuring that people in need of accommodations are treated fairly,"he wrote.

他写道:"这起诉讼是为了尊重工会讨价还价的权利,并确保需要住宿的人得到公平对待。"

The union and the administration are scheduled to meet again on Wednesday in hopes of settling the matter ahead of Friday's hearing.

工会和政府定于周三再次会面,希望在周五听证会之前解决这个问题。

Hundreds of people,including state employees,gathered outside the state capitol in Olympia Saturday to protest the mask and vaccine mandates.

周六,包括州政府雇员在内的数百人聚集在奥林匹亚州议会大厦外,抗议对口罩和疫苗的强制要求。

A coalition of Oregon police officers and firefighters have sued Gov.Kate Brown over a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for state employees.

俄勒冈州警察和消防队员联合起诉州长 Kate Brown,控告他强制要求州政府雇员接种2019冠状病毒疾病疫苗。

The plaintiffs—including the Oregon Fraternal Order of Police and the Kingsley Firefighters Association—argued in a lawsuit filed Friday in a Jefferson County court(pdf)that Brown's executive order violates a number of laws and want it blocked.

包括俄勒冈州最高美国警察同业会和金斯利消防协会在内的原告周五在美国最高杰斐逊县法院提起诉讼,称布朗的行政命令违反了多项法律,希望该命令被阻止。

"Plaintiffs seek an order declaring EO No.21-29 is unenforceable because it conflicts with Oregon statutes,would result in a common law wrongful discharge of the Plaintiffs,conflicts with the Oregon Constitution's guarantee of free expression,and conflicts with the United States Constitution guarantee of equal protection,free exercise,and due process,"the complaint states.

"原告要求法院下令宣布第21-29号《美国宪法》不可强制执行,因为它与俄勒冈州的法规相冲突,将导致普通法错误地解雇原告,与俄勒冈州宪法对言论自由的保障相冲突,并与美国宪法对平等保护、自由行使权利和正当程序的保障相冲突,"申诉中写道。

Brown issued an executive order(pdf)on Aug.13 that imposed a mandatory vaccine requirement on all executive branch employees.In the order,Brown said that,to date,around 70 percent of the state's executive branch employees had taken the vaccine voluntarily,prompted in part by state efforts like organizing onsite vaccine clinics and financial incentives.

布朗在813日发布了一项行政命令,要求所有行政部门的雇员接种强制性疫苗。在命令中,布朗说,到目前为止,约70%的州行政部门雇员自愿接种疫苗,部分原因是州政府努力组织现场疫苗诊所和财政奖励。

Citing the rise in COVID-19 infections and noting that both private and public employers across the United States have imposed mandates,Brown said it was time for tougher measures in Oregon.

2019冠状病毒疾病感染率的上升为例,并指出美国各地的私人和公共雇主都已经强制执行了相关规定,Brown 说现在是俄勒冈州采取更严厉措施的时候了。

"With the Delta variant raging in Oregon,with the state's ability to fully return to in-person work continuing to be hampered by the risks from COVID-19,having implemented a series of incentives aimed at achieving voluntary compliance,and with full FDA approval of the COVID-19 vaccine expected within weeks,the time has come for any remaining state employees and those who work alongside them in state government to get vaccinated,"she wrote in the order.

她在命令中写道:"随着 Delta 变异体在俄勒冈州肆虐,该州完全恢复亲身工作的能力继续受到来自2019冠状病毒疾病的风险的阻碍,已经实施了一系列旨在实现自愿遵守的激励措施,并且 FDA 预计在几周内完全批准2019冠状病毒疾病疫苗,现在是任何剩余的州雇员和那些与他们一起在州政府工作的人接种疫苗的时候了。"

Ten days after Brown's order,the Food and Drug Administration(FDA)gave full regulatory approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

在布朗下达命令十天后,美国食品和药物管理局(FDA)对辉瑞生物技术公司生产的2019冠状病毒疾病疫苗给予了完全的监管批准。

The order gives Oregon state workers until Oct.18 to provide proof of vaccination or face consequences that could include dismissal.

该命令要求俄勒冈州的工作人员在1018日之前提供疫苗接种证明,否则将面临可能被解雇的后果。

The plaintiffs argued in the complaint that enforcement of the order would result in wrongful termination,and they have asked the court to declare it unlawful and block its enforcement.

原告在申诉中辩称,执行该命令将导致非法终止合同,他们已要求法院宣布该命令非法并阻止其执行。

"The individual plaintiffs are Executive Branch employees…who want to exercise control over their own medical treatment and are being forced to choose between their rights privileges and liberties as citizens on the one hand and their employment,careers,and financial futures on the other,"the complaint states.

"个别原告是行政部门的雇员......他们希望对自己的医疗行为行使控制权,并被迫在作为公民的权利和自由与他们的就业、职业和财务前景之间做出选择,"诉状写道。

The Epoch Times has reached out to the governor's office for comment on the suit.

大纪元时报已经联系了州长办公室,要求对这起诉讼发表评论。

Brown's spokesperson Liz Merah defended the executive order in a statement to The Associated Press.

布朗的发言人利兹·梅拉赫在给美联社的一份声明中为这项行政命令辩护。

"Given the seriousness of the situation,employer vaccine requirements have become an important tool,and state government plays a part.It's critical to protect state workers,workplaces,and facilities,as well as members of the public who use state services,"she told the outlet.

"鉴于情况的严重性,雇主疫苗要求已成为一个重要工具,州政府也发挥了作用。保护政府工作人员、工作场所和设施以及使用政府服务的公众是至关重要的。"

The lawsuit comes as Oregon has faced a sharp rise in COVID-19 infections in recent weeks,with a seven-day average of 2,222 daily cases on Sept.2,compared to fewer than 500 in mid-July,according to state health authorities.

这起诉讼发生在俄勒冈州最近几周面临2019冠状病毒疾病感染急剧上升的情况下,根据州卫生当局的数据,92日每天平均有2222例感染病例,而7月中旬只有不到500例。
