Through a series of planned actions next week, Amazon will be challenged to do the right thing and recognise workers and their importance to the success of the company.
Increasingly, Amazon is being challenged to recognise unions, as workers seek to improve their rights and conditions through coordinated action at a global level.
Steve Cotton, ITF general secretary, asserts: “My advice to the CEO of Amazon is rather than put off the inevitable and risk business disruption - I would seek to negotiate a solution that is good for shareholders, management and, most importantly, the workers that have made Amazon so successful. The starting point for that solution must be the right to organise; this is clearly a growing movement.
"The ITF is committed to support Amazon workers in their pursuit for fundamental rights including the right to organise."
