Employees for Caribou Coffee are planning to rally for the second time in a month to demand changes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Workers are planning to stage a rally from their cars at 1 p.m. Monday in front of the company's offices in Brooklyn Center. They're seeking hazard pay, increased personal protective equipment in stores and a comprehensive sick leave policy, according to a news release.

Caribou employees are asking for a $3 per hour raise through September. In late April, the company implemented a 10% raise for store employees through May.

A few weeks ago, workers staged a caravan-style protest outside a Caribou Coffee store in Roseville.
