Amazon, Instacart, Whole Foods, Target, Shipt, Walmart, and FedEx are all facing strike actions on May Day, possibly the largest strike and sickout in recent US history by retail workers. Meat factories and Ralphs are also facing resistance and planning actions from UFCW.
Workers demand safer working conditions, and transparency about who has gotten COVID-19 in their workplaces.
The bosses are keeping COVID-19 hush hush, and not giving workers protective equipment. These unsafe working conditions are leading to illness and death.
