Some universities across the country recently confirmed they are considering mandatory jabs for students and staff.
However, SAPTU will never force a policy opposed to the Bill of Rights – and in which we had no input before its implementation – onto our members. On the contrary, if we are involved with discussions over these policies, we can ensure that we protect the rights of our members, whether they prefer to be vaccinated or not.
Everyone has the right to bodily and psychological integrity –
which includes the right to security in and control over their body.
Therefore SAPTU demands to be included in any formulation of policies regarding
mandatory vaccinations, as its primary purpose is to protect job security.
