HVCC faculty upset with school’s vaccine policy change

The faculty association at Hudson Valley Community College is fighting back after the school rejected the state COVID vaccine mandate.

The association sent us a statement that reads in part, “The decision by HVCC President Roger Ramsammy, made with no input from faculty or from membership of the college’s own COVID-19 subcommittee, is reckless and shortsighted.”

The faculty association says it has filed a grievance against the college, claiming the change violates contractual workplace safety provisions.

We have reached out to the college administration for their reaction.
