LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- For the second time workers at GE aviation are protesting the company's vaccine mandate.
As we previously reported GE Aviation employees have until December 8th to be vaccinated or they could lose their jobs.
Protesters say many of them have already had COVID-19 so they feel their natural immunity will protect them.
They say it's not right that the vaccine is being mandated they feel they should have the choice to get it or not.
Organizers say it is not just people choosing not to get the vaccine that are taking part in the protest.
"A lot of people are very supportive even if they did make the choice to get vaccinated they don't think it's right for us to be forced to get vaccinated so we are able to feed our family," said James Chrismore the Assembly and Test Technician GE Aviation and organizer of the protest.
"If you are hesitant you are not alone we've got to stop the fear of talking about this," said Kevin Rosen who wouldn't disclose where he worked but said he too is being subjected to a vaccine mandate. "The censorship online is too much. What we need is more face-to-face one-on-one conversations."
Protesters at GE say they have until the 29th to file a religious exemption. Crismore says they have been getting support from across the state.
He says workers from Terra Haute, Indianapolis, and a medical freedom group have joined their protest as well even though they don't work at GE.
Protesters hope the GE will reconsider their vaccine protocol.
