The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), the primary union for 70,000 poultry workers in the United States, has congratulated Tyson Foods for pledging to create a better workplace at its production facilities with new and expanded initiatives on safety, transparency, and compensation.

Tyson committed to continuing its collaboration with the UFCW on a workplace safety and illness and injury prevention initiative that will be rolled out to all plants and be released publicly.

“Tyson Foods’ commitment to worker safety and workers’ rights should not just be applauded – it should serve as a model for the rest of the industry,” said UFCW International President Marc Perrone.
