OPERATING ENGINEERS LOCAL 150 APPRENTICESHIP FUND COVID-19 VACCINATION POLICY

On September 3, 2021, Governor Pritzker promulgated Executive Order 2021-22. The Executive Order 2021-22 contains vaccination requirements for an Institution of Higher Education. The Executive Order 2021-22 defines an “Institution of Higher Education” to include any “business, technical or vocational school, or other educational institution offering degrees, programs or instruction beyond the secondary school level.”

The Operating Engineers Local 150 Apprenticeship Fund (“Apprenticeship Program”) hereby adopts the following policy regarding COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements to comply with Executive Order 2021-22.

Anyone who has not established that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must be tested consistent with the requirements below.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination may be met by providing one of the following:
  1. A CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card or acceptable copy of the card.
  2. Documentation from a health care provider or electronic health record; or
  3. State immunization records.

Beginning September 27, 2021, in order to enter the premises of the Apprenticeship Program, all Apprenticeship Employee’s, Trainee’s, or Visitors who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 shall undergo weekly testing for COVID-19.

Testing must be presented the first day of the week for which entry to the Apprenticeship Program premise is desired during the relevant period. The negative test must be a PCR test that was conducted within 72 hours of the presentation of the test.

Effective on October 19, 2021, all Apprenticeship Employee’s, Trainee’s, or Visitors who desire entry to the Apprenticeship Program premises must either complete the vaccinations set forth in this policy or qualify for an Exemption set forth in this policy. The testing procedures set forth in this policy shall not apply after October 19, 2021, unless the individual qualifies for an Exemption.

Individuals are exempt from the requirement to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if
  1. Vaccination is medically contraindicated, including any individual who is entitled to an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act or any other law applicable to a disability-related reasonable accommodation; or
  2. Vaccination would require the individual to violate or forgo a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance.

Individuals who are exempt for the reason described above shall undergo weekly COVID-19 Testing.
