Some Whole Foods workers call for 'sick out'

BUSINESS NEWS MARCH 31, 2020 / 12:22 PM / UPDATED 16 MINUTES AGO

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A group of workers at Whole Foods Market called on others to phone in sick at all of the grocerís stores on Tuesday to protest what they say is a lack of adequate compensation and protections from the coronavirus.

The group, known on Twitter as Whole Worker, describes itself as a grassroots movement of Whole Foods team members working to unionize.

The group did not respond to a request for comment and it is not known how many Whole Foods employees called in sick. A representative for Amazon.com-owned Whole Foods did not respond to a request for comment.

As millions of people shelter in place in the United States and non-essential businesses are shuttered to halt the spread of the virus, grocery stores and pharmacies are staying open to supply food and medicine.
