Meat processing workers fear health risks despite increased pay
"Well a fourth USDA food inspector has died of the corona virus that comes as the meat packing plants they inspected become hot spots for outbreaks at least ten thousand meatpacking workers across the country have been infected likely far more and at least thirty have died Kim Cordova as president of the U. F. C. W. local seven union which represents workers in Colorado and Wyoming including meat Packers she joins us now welcome thank you for having me well let's start with the workers that you represent several thousand workers for the food processing giant J. B. S. what has happened to them since this pandemic began how many have gotten sick so we have had seven deaths in the Greenlee put facility so I believe we have the largest death toll for the entire country total for our plant we have three hundred sixteen positive cases but we have not had testing for all of the workers so they did not until this week even offer testing for a symptomatic workers is so the plant was closed back in April after the third death at the plant so they are back in operating again but yes we've had several deaths since the plan was re opened and what are the conditions like at this point in the plan is the facility save how close together or the workers were kind of protection do they have so while the plant was closed the company did make some improvements to the plant like in the lunch rooms break rooms they put plexi glass dividers that on the fabrication side of the floor they did put metal dividers that they have markings on the floor to identify six foot of social distancing their staggering breaks also they do not have the highest level of personal protective equipment like respirators but without daily testing and they opened up that plant without testing all of the workers we've seen the numbers start to move up again you know the plant was about a hundred and twenty somewhere around there positive cases those were workers that were had symptoms that were tested at yesterday's numbers that we have three hundred and sixteen and they just started offering voluntary testing but out of sight that's not on the plant you know on the plant site you have to drop five to a community college and get tested and they also have the testing during work hours so they are going to have to do something about that personal protective equipment and areas in the plant where you just can't social distance well what do workers tell you are they glad to be going back into work or they're afraid you know a lot of workers are scared they need to be able to pay their rent and provide you know a living for their families a lot of workers are still grieving the death of their co workers and as well as their family members that died so we still have workers that are on ventilators you know we know of one family that soon have to make it to the you know the most horrible decision to take their family member there JB it's a J. B. as she's a JBS worker off the ventilator or you know she will be on the ventilator for the rest of her life in a coma so it's it's a really bad situation for the workers Kim let me ask you this question because there are a lot of listeners probably hearing you talk about this and wondering whether they ought to just stop buying meat for the moment because they don't want to contribute to the situation what would you say to Americans who are hearing this and they're worried about being part of the problem there is a way that you can run this plant and keep the food supply chain going it we need to run it safely so when the president of the United States states invoked his executive order you know he failed to provide any type of safety mechanisms or invoke you know strong safety laws enforceable laws that would be number one so you can run the food supply chain if we had safety controls in place so there needs to be some real change in those industries and you can continue to continue the flow of the food chain but we need to have it say for the work force let me finally ask you you represent another group of workers the Kroger's grocery store workers in Kroger's has announced that it is ending here pay for workers this weekend that was an additional two dollars an hour that it was giving to workers during this crisis what what are your workers saying about that well they're really upset because we're not out of the woods yet you know with the states opening up these workers are going to be put but you know they're still at risk they have to often work you know address customers face to face whether helping and assisting them and for the company to take the bonus away with the workers don't understand that because the companies have profited the most Kroger has they've had record sales but they're taking the pain away from the front line workers and so we're hoping that croaker reef you know rethink their decision and provide that additional two dollars for these workers that have really risked everything there's that their health and safety as well as their family members that is Kim Cordova who is president of UFCW local seven union in Colorado and Wyoming she represents meatpacking employees grocery store workers and more thank you so much for joining us thank you Jeremy have a wonderful have a
