ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A temporary restraining order blocking New York’s vaccine mandate for some court system workers was granted to the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA).
The CSEA filed it in state supreme court in Albany Thursday, on behalf of about 5,800 members.
The vaccine mandate takes effect on Sept. 27th, but the order issued Friday delays it for non-judicial workers until at least Oct. 1.
CSEA said a judge will likely decide next week if the restraining order becomes a preliminary injunction, which could last for 60 days.
The Public Employment Relations Board will then decide how to proceed.
