Following President Biden's vaccine mandate announcement, the American Building Material Alliance (ABMA) conducted a survey to measure support for the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).

Announced last week, the Biden Administration and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are issuing an (ETS) that requires all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure that their workforce is fully vaccinated.

A survey conducted by the ABMA, the new LBM advocacy and lobbying organization backed by the Northeastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) and the Construction Suppliers Association (CSA), received “definitive results” the organization said.

More than 75% of those participating in the survey oppose the mandate.

The ABMA said that it will continue to gather information from OSHA on the upcoming emergency rule and will be drafting a letter to both the White House and OSHA that will outline our concerns with the proposed vaccine mandate.

The National Lumber and Building Materials Association also conducted a survey regarding the vaccination mandate.

Survey results, for the poll that ended yesterday, have yet to be provided by the NLBMDA.

At HBSDealer, we are conducting our own survey concerning vaccination mandates. Take the poll here.
