Posted On: Nov 27, 2023
Nov. 27, 2023 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Amazon workers in multiple countries went on strike for Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, to protest the e-commerce giant’s labor practices. The strike is organized by the UNI Global Union, which represents workers around the world, and said it has mobilized workers from more than 30 countries, including Italy, Germany and the U.S., to speak out against Amazon’s treatment of employees. The effort is part of the “Make Amazon Pay” campaign, which has organized strikes for the past four years. Christy Hoffman, general secretary of UNI Global Union, said workers around the world are “standing up to Make Amazon Pay.” Jessie Moreno, an Amazon Teamsters member from Local 396 in California, said she and other workers “are on strike against Amazon’s unfair labor practices.” “ We have taken our picket line across the country, and now we’re joining our colleagues from around the world to demand respect, fair wages, and a workplace where our health and safety are a priority,” Moreno said in a statement. “Amazon is no match for the power of its workers united.” The Hill
