“From Bessemer to Seville, workers around the world have been saying it all along— Amazon is a fiercely anti-union company that needs to be reined-in. The Bamazon union presented clear evidence that Amazon intimidated workers and trampled with their right to form a union free from fear. Now a U.S. labour board hearing officer is recommending a new union election in Alabama. This is good news for anyone who thinks that Amazon cannot cheat their way out of this. Workers deserve a fair process, and now these workers are one step closure to getting one,” said Christy Hoffman, General Secretary of UNI Global Union.
Representing more than 20 million workers in 150 countries—including 7 million workers in Europe—UNI Global Union and UNI Europa are driven by the responsibility to ensure skills and service jobs are decent jobs and that workers’ rights are protected, including the right of union representation and collective bargaining.
