    GM’s Reuss addresses idea of vaccine mandate and Flint’s future

    General Motors President Mark Reuss on Tuesday addressed the idea of mandating a vaccine for GM’s workforce after he said he believes there is a “major risk” for another pandemic, which would hurt the auto industry.

    The Detroit Three automakers have been working with the UAW, the union that represents most hourly autoworkers, on workplace safety and vaccinations. Reuss did not know the status of those conversations.

    But, he said, GM leadership is having difficult conversations around a vaccine mandate after President Joe Biden said earlier this month that all employers with more than 100 workers must require employees to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly.

    “We just want to encourage all of our employees to get vaccinated,” Reuss said at the 2021 Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island.
