Tyson Foods announced that they are requiring team members at U.S. office locations to be fully vaccinated by October 1, 2021. All other team members are required to be fully vaccinated by November 1, 2021, subject to ongoing discussions with locations represented by unions. Frontline team members will receive $200 upon verification of being fully vaccinated. The announcement came as part a nationally released statement which was also relayed on Tyson social media sites.
This decision will make a direct impact in our community as the Tyson Plant in Leake County provides employment for approximately 1500 people from our region.
We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
