Actions for
Worker Safety

Nearly 33,000 food workers have tested positive for COVID-19. Workers nationwide are calling for an emergency OSHA standard that gives them workplace protections.

Take action today.

Tyson’s failure to properly protect its workforce from the spread of this deadly virus is a prime illustration of how little the company cares about its employees—who are predominantly people of color and immigrants—despite its aggressive media efforts to portray the opposite. In response, HEAL Food Alliance and Animal Agriculture Reform Collaborative(AARC) members, along with other food justice, labor, environmental, and animal welfare organizations are organizing a Week of Action Against Tyson beginning Monday, July 6th to uplift workers' demands and support their fight for a safe workplace.
