TULSA, Oklahoma -

Southwest Airlines employees are protesting the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

They met outside Southwest's headquarters in Dallas. Texas lawmakers are currently working on a bill that would let workers sue their employers if they're let go for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile, Southwest is asking a federal court to reject an effort by one of its pilot's unions to block the vaccine mandate.

The airline wants all employees vaccinated by November 24th.
