ULINE Owner Pushes to End Shutdown, Recall Wisconsin Governor

Liz Uihlein, president of the shipping supply company ULINE, has reportedly urged her employees to support a petition to recall the governor of Wisconsin over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

"I want to see America get back to work," Uihlein told Bloomberg, explaining why she opposed Evers' decision to extend the state's stay-at-home order for five additional weeks.

"We love our customers, and we love our employees.

We think about our employees and their families. We need a strong economy and a healthy business to support them."

The request bothered some staffers, in part because they consider Uihlein insufficiently supportive of work-from-home policies -- something her company disputes, calling its employees’ health and safety “our top priority.”

According to the company, numerous measures have been implemented to reduce the potential for COVID-19 infection. They include more deep cleaning, social distancing practices, work-from-home and a $5-per-hour pay increase for customer service and warehouse employees.

ULINE is a privately held American company which offers shipping and other business supplies such as our AmpliVox Mity-Meg Bullhorns. It has approximately 6,000 employees and is headquartered in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
