COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Update | Teamsters
September 29, 2021

Dear Campus Colleagues:

I am happy to share with you that the CSU has completed the meet and confer process with Teamsters Local 2010 (Unit 6) for the COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy. With this, the CSU COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy (as published) is now in full effect for Teamsters employees.

The Interim Policy requires all Teamsters employees to self-certify their vaccination status by certifying they are fully vaccinated, need a medical exemption, need a religious exemption, or are not physically coming to campus. Employees may submit their certification in the myNorthridge Portal, under the Policies and Procedures pagelet of the Faculty or Staff tab, by selecting the EE Vaccine Self-Certification link and completing the form accordingly.

For Teamsters employees requesting an exemption, a medical exemption requires a medical provider’s verification that a COVID-19 vaccine is medically inadvisable, and a religious exemption requires an employee to certify their religious belief excludes them from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Employees who request an exemption will be forwarded the applicable verification forms.

Teamsters employees are required to comply with the Interim Policy as a condition of employment no later than the close of business on Friday, November 26, 2021. Employees who do not provide certification may be denied access to campus/programs and will be subject to consequences for noncompliance with this policy.

Please visit Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Information for vaccination information, including how to obtain a copy of your vaccination record or how to schedule a vaccination appointment.

Additionally, unvaccinated employees, until fully vaccinated, or those who request a medical or religious exemption are subject to weekly COVID-19 testing. Campus-sponsored weekly testing shall be provided at no charge to the employee and the time spent testing is considered hours worked. Please visit COVID-19 Employee Testing for testing information.

Finally, Teamsters employees may refer to the corresponding fully executed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

For questions please contact 818-677-6566 or

Thank you.
