Teamsters Support Amazon Workers in Demanding Real Wage Increases
Posted On: Sep 22, 2023
Sept. 22, 2023 | SOLIDARITY | Amazon workers across the country are demanding real wage increases after the company announced pay rates this week that fall well below the industry standard set by the Teamsters at UPS. “We got this raise because workers have been organizing for what we deserve, but clearly Amazon can do much better,” said Rex Evans, an Amazon worker at KSBD, the company’s air hub facility in San Bernardino, Calif., where he is a member of the Inland Empire Amazon Workers United organizing committee. “While Amazon executives make millions, we still have to choose between paying our bills and buying food. Amazon is clearly scared of worker power, and we are going to keep fighting to be paid fairly and treated with respect.” Amazon’s wage announcement comes after a summer of shopfloor actions, petitions, rallies, picket lines, and unfair labor practice strikes by workers at the company, including Amazon drivers who joined Teamsters Local 396 in Los Angeles in April. Teamsters
