Conn. Grocery Store Workers Disappointed By New Vaccine Rollout

Union leaders say their members continue to be exposed to the coronavirus everyday as they work on the front lines selling food and supplies to shoppers, who at times have refused to follow safety protocol.

United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 371 President Ronald Petronella speaks with Connecticut Public Radio's Lori Mack about the plan.
