The meatpacker has announced stronger benefits for fully vaccinated U.S. frontline team members from January 2022.

The benefits will include up to 20 hours of paid sick leave per year, while new hires will also receive one week of vacation after six months of employment.

The company currently provides its U.S. workers with free on-site Covid-19 vaccinations and provides a US$200 bonus as a “thank you” to fully vaccinated workers, as well as entry into a US$6 million sweepstake.

According to Tyson Foods, more than 75% of its U.S. team members now have at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
