WASHINGTON, Oct 13 (Reuters) – Union Pacific Corp (UNP.N) stated on Wednesday it’s going to require its 31,000 U.S. workers to be vaccinated underneath President Joe Biden’s govt order requiring that federal contractors mandate vaccines by Dec. 8, besides for workers who obtain an authorized exemption.

“As a federal contractor who ships goods supporting our nation’s armed services, … all employees are required to report their vaccination status or have an approved medical or religious accommodation by the federally mandated deadline,” Union Pacific, the highest U.S. railroad operator, stated in an announcement.
