“I have seen the anonymous letter and I completely appreciate and understand some individual’s concerns right now, it is a difficult time. Greenhill Produce cares deeply for our employees and takes all steps to protect their health and safety. We talk to our employees regularly to let them know we are here to support them and to let them know we are taking all health guidelines seriously. We’re working closely with CK Public Health and are following their specific guidance explicitly. They are directing all our protocols and isolation activities on farm including mandatory active screening, physical distancing, accommodation specifics, requiring all employees to wear masks and glove at all times, instituting strict sanitation processes to be executed twice a day, and erecting physical barriers where needed.

During this stressful period we want to be clear that no one will lose their jobs and all workers will continue to be paid, and we continue to pay for and provide all supplies, groceries, as well as any medications they would need.

In terms of bunkhouse conditions, we are proud to provide some of the best quality living quarters for our workers, meeting and greatly exceeding federal government regulations. Examples of amenities we provide in all residences is free Wi-Fi, telephone, satellite tv in each bedroom, extremely high quality furnishings, kitchen and sanitary amenities, fire alarm system, in floor heating and air conditioning.”

Sincerely,

Justin Geertsema
