Stand with Sprouts Farmers Market Workers: COVID-19 PPE for Workers & Customers Now!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!

We, the family, friends, and community allies of Sprouts Farmers Market workers at 5800 N 10th St, McAllen, TX 78504, sign this petition to join our voices with workers to ensure a healthy and safe workplace for Sprouts employees and customers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Workers' lives are in danger. Recently Texas declared a “state-wide emergency.” Hidalgo County issued an “emergency order” declaring grocery stores as “essential retail businesses.” The pandemic has doubled the volume of customers and greatly increased store revenue -- dramatically increasing the risk to workers’ lives and their family’s health.

We call on Sprouts Farmers Market to immediately give: 1.) Hazard pay of $3 per hour for all workers; 2.) Paid sick leave of 14 days for all workers; 3.) Personal protective equipment, gloves, sneeze guards, hand sanitizer, and disinfectants to clean and disinfect workstations for all departments and limit the number of customers in the store; and, 4.) Establish a Sprouts Safety Committee with one representative from each department to meet with management every 48 hours for one hour to ensure the health and safety of all Sprouts workers.

We are grateful to Sprouts workers who serve their fellow Texans in our time of need. We are thankful for the federally protected rights all American workers have to come together and organize to ensure their employer respects their health and safety. We fully expect Sprouts Farmers Market to respect workers' rights. Allies will watch to ensure they do so. We call on Sprouts Market to support workers and the communities that rely upon them everyday. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "The time is always right to do the right thing!"
