Meatpacking Union Condemns Reopening of Factories Amid Pandemic

HeadlineMay 12, 2020

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union — the country’s largest meatpacking workers’ union — is condemning the reopening of 14 meatpacking plants under a recent executive order by President Trump. The union is calling for CDC coronavirus safety guidelines to be made mandatory, as at least 30 meatpacking workers have died of COVID-19 and over 10,000 have been exposed to or infected by the coronavirus. Many of the meatpacking workers are immigrants.
