November 4, 2021 Press Release

FDRA issued the following statement on today’s release of the private-sector vaccine mandate:

We are working hard to help our Members understand the requirements of the new vaccine mandate. Companies have just 60 days to ensure their employees are fully vaccinated, and this falls during the middle of the holiday season, our busiest time of the year. This also comes at a time when we face a supply chain crisis, escalating shipping fees, and rising costs for our companies and consumers. With all the challenges we face, attracting and retaining workers is absolutely critical, and we are concerned about such a short lead time. FDRA will continue to be the voice of the industry and help companies navigate this difficult issue.

About FDRA: FDRA is the footwear industry’s voice in Washington. It represents and advocates for nearly 500 companies and brands worldwide, or 95% of total U.S. footwear sales, making it America’s largest and most respected footwear trade association.
