Frontline essential workers deserve $1500 bonus pay

Meatpacking workers in Minnesota risk their lives everyday, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. You deserve to be compensated with bonus pay for the additional risk you took.

At the state legislature, $250 million was set aside for Minnesota’s frontline workers and was unresolved in 2021. We continue to advocate for all frontline workers who could not work from home, and for an increased payout of $1500 per worker.

Most Dangerous and Difficult Jobs in the U.S.

Jobs inside meatpacking plants are some of the most dangerous and difficult in the United States, and the risk to food workers and our food supply increase when the line speed increases. Together, we ensure each others' safety through our daily work, our union contract with the employer, and through advocating for safe Federal standards.
