A Manhattan Supreme Court judge temporarily blocked the city government’s vaccine mandate for Department of Education (DOE) employees Tuesday evening, handing a victory to the major municipal unions who challenged Mayor Bill de Blasio’s order.

Judge Laurence L. Love suspended the vaccine mandate until September 22nd, ruling that the city is “temporarily restrained from implementing” the mandate. Per de Blasio’s edict, DOE staffers are required to receive at least one shot by September 27 as a condition of employment.

Henry Garrido, Executive Director of District Council 37, NYC’s largest municipal employees union and a petitioner in the lawsuit said the court’s ruling was encouraging but recognized that more legal battles were to come.

“While we do believe our members should get the vaccine, we do not believe it should be a condition of employment,” he said in a statement obtained by the New York Post“Clearly, the courts agree. The fight is not over, but we are energized by this decision and ready to keep going on behalf of our members.”
