Norfolk County company looking for asparagus harvest teams

Scotlynn Group, an Ontario logistics and produce company, has had its workforce hit hard by a COVID-19 outbreak. In response, the company is looking for teams of five people to form harvest squads to bring in the asparagus harvest.

The company has used its social media streams to shed light on not only the COVID-19 outbreak, as detailed in a letter posted on Facebook below, but also to find new workers to bring in the timely vegetable harvests that begin with asparagus.

The Scotlynn Group says that several members of its migrant worker group have tested positive for COVID-19 and are isolating (with full pay and support). In the meantime, the organization has asked that those in the area assemble teams of five people willing to harvest asparagus for $25 an hour.

Ontario is still experiencing about 400 new COVID-19 cases per day, and extended its state of emergency until June 30, 2020. A recent spike in cases has been centred near Simcoe, Ont., where over 160 agriculture workers are currently battling the virus.
