The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred an enormous demand for security guards, according to CTV News.

Job descriptions for guards now can include temperature checks in at least one case -- removing bodies from a morgue.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 333 has increased stress on guards.

The union intervened in one Ontario case where guards were asked to remove bodies from a hospital because funeral home staff did not want to expose themselves to the virus.
