I have encountered this on Catalina 10.15.7 as well. It seems related to the switch to python3.

When launching from the command line with:
/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/MacOS/MySQLWorkbench --verbose
results in:
Fatal Python error: initfsencoding: unable to load the file system codec, sys.path = ['/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/Resources/libraries', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python37.zip', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7/lib-dynload']
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'encodings'

Current thread 0x0000000115428dc0 (most recent call first):
Abort trap: 6

Possibly python version conflicts? I have python 3.8/9 installed via homebrew.
