On Wednesday morning, New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams revealed he would "revisit" how the vaccine mandates in the city are addressed, suggesting that current mayor Bill de Blasio should sit down with unions to reach a resolution about the controversial mandate.

This after he had previously come out in favor of vaccine mandates.

"We need to revisit how we are going to address the vaccine mandates. Now, I stated I did not want to Monday-morning-quarterback the mayor. This is his time to be the man, he has to make the decisions," Adams said on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Adams encouraged de Blasio to sit down with unions to come up with a resolution to the ongoing battles over the mandate in the city for municipal workers.

"What I'm going to encourage him to do is to sit down with the unions. We can work this out. This is a very difficult moment, but there's an opportunity to sit down with the unions. I communicated with some of the union leaders yesterday and they are open to sit down, and this is a good opportunity to do so and I'm going to encourage him to make that happen," Adams continued.

"If you know when you sit down at the table that no matter what happens, you're going to not have to deal with what the current mayor stated, that is unfair," Adams said on CNN's New Day. "I would not want someone to do that to me as a man, and I'm not going to do it to this man. Here's an opportunity for him to bring about a resolution and when I inherit this situation, I'm going to bring about a resolution."

Adams told NY1 that he wants to be known as the "get stuff done" mayor.

"I want to be considered a GSD mayor, get stuff done," Adams said. "It's time to get rid of the institutional poverty [and] inequalities in our city, and it's time to stop being a city that's too bureaucratic, and too difficult to do business in."

Adams also told Bloomberg TV that New York City will become "a business-friendly city," with promises to find upwards of 5 percent of city agency budgets to cut rather than advocating for raising taxes, according to the New York Post.

"It's called the Empire State, yet you are destroying empires every day," he said on the Fox 5's Good Day New York.

"People are afraid to do business in the city, [which is] too expensive, too bureaucratic and too difficult. My agency heads are going to get a new mandate: Instead of going into a business figuring out how to close it down, darn it, you're going to figure out how to keep the doors open," he continued.
