The New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association released a memo stating they plan to take legal action against the state for mandating the vaccine.
The memo explains that while understanding the want for safe working conditions, the state failed to include the union in making a decision that changes the terms and conditions of correctional officers employment.
The type of legal action being taken has not been made clear, but the memo said more information would be available soon.
