More than 170 employees signed a petition to demand changes at Tyson Foods’ facilities in Northwest Arkansas during the COVID-19 pandemic... On Wednesday, April 22, Tyson Foods suspended operations at a pork processing plant in Iowa due to COVID-19 cases and high absenteeism during the pandemic... That very same day, Venceremos supporters marched down to the Tyson Food Berry Street plant in Springdale carrying a petition of more than 170 signatures from Northwest Arkansas Tyson employees demanding a change... Magaly Licolli... the co-founder of Venceremos... [said] “They want sick leave benefits, they want wage increases, they want transparency on the COVID-19 cases at the plant."

... Tyson HR Operations Vice President Hector Gonzalez [said in a video]... “This is an everchanging situation and we are committed to exploring every way possible for keeping our team members safe"... Licolli said she thinks Tyson needs to do more because the procedures it has in place obviously aren’t working considering the outbreaks reported in other states. “The reason they [the workers] do not feel safe enough is because they [Tyson plants] are not doing enough,” she said.
