Biden Administration Acts to Improve Safety for Slaughter House Workers

Agribusiness

IOWA — The Biden administration is following through with a promise to improve safety for workers at slaughter houses by slowing down speeds on the ‘slaughter line’.

In 2019 the United Food and Commercial Workers Union filed a lawsuit against the USDA after it released a rule along slaughter line speed to increase. The union argued that made the workplace unsafe. The Biden administration has agreed and has withdrawn a list of line speed rules.
