Amazon workers at the JFK8 fulfillment center on Staten Island made history last year when we voted to form the first-ever union at an Amazon facility in America. It was a great victory, but it was also just the beginning.
Since Amazon Labor Union won that vote, Amazon hasn’t just ramped up its union-busting behavior at other warehouses, they’ve refused to even come to the table and negotiate with the union.
It’s time for Amazon to come to the bargaining table. The workers’ demands are simple: Better pay, better benefits, and better working conditions. Amazon’s choice to spend money union-busting — firing organizers in other warehouses and flooding workers with anti-union propaganda — instead of bargaining in good faith goes against the spirit of American labor law.
Send a message to Amazon’s Board of Directors: It’s time to come to the bargaining table and work out a contract with the Amazon Labor Union.
Amazon is one of the most profitable companies in the world — and its profits soared during the pandemic. Amazon warehouse worker Poushawn Brown died after Amazon forced her to conduct Covid tests without providing any PPE. Instead of using its wealth to protect the workers who kept it running, Amazon treated the human beings who make it run as disposable.
Tell Amazon: Stop union busting and start bargaining with Amazon Labor Union!
