The union sued the governor over the vaccine mandate this month.

A Massachusetts police union said Friday that dozens of state troopers have resigned over the state’s vaccine mandate for state employees.
The State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) filed a lawsuit to delay Republican Governor Charlie Baker’s vaccine mandate earlier this month, arguing that the October 17 deadline would cause “irreparable harm” to officers. The union asked for more time to “negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment.”
However, a judge in the Massachusetts Superior Court turned down the union’s request on Thursday.
