Domino’s workers from three stores with employees who are confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 held a caravan Wednesday to protest the company’s failure to keep workers safe and to demand immediate health and economic protections.

The caravan began passed by a Domino’s at 3631 Crenshaw Blvd. in Los Angeles, another Domino’s at 954 W. Manchester Ave. and a third location at 7021 Atlantic Ave. before ending at a McDonald’s at 950 W. Floral Dr.

Workers at the McDonald’s have been on strike since early April demanding a deep cleaning, quarantine pay and personal protective equipment after a co-worker tested positive for COVID-19. The employee has been hospitalized for weeks.

Employees at Domino’s on Crenshaw Boulevard, where at least six employees have tested positive, walked off the job in early April demanding similar action, including two weeks of quarantine with full pay.

They also filed a complaint with the Los Angeles County Department of Health asking the department to work with Domino’s to prevent a renewed outbreak of COVID-19.
