Workers at Amazon in Alberta have taken the first step toward joining a union. Work at Amazon? Contact a Teamster organizer
In 2020, Jeff Bezos,
founder of Amazon,
made US$75 BILLION
HOW MUCH DID YOU MAKE?
It would take weeks – if not months –
for most Amazon workers to earn
what Jeff Bezos makes in a second.
DOES THIS SEEM FAIR?
Your work day shouldn’t feel like an intense
9-HOUR WORKOUT! YOU HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO JOIN A UNION.
CURRENT HOURLY WAGES FOR
TEAMSTER MEMBERS IN COMPARABLE
WAREHOUSES PROGRESS UP TO
BETWEEN $24.50 AND $31.93.
Once unionized, the company will no longer be able to fire workers without just cause. Amazon would need proof of very serious misconduct, like theft or insubordination.
Amazon should not be allowed to get rid of honest, hardworking employees who get injured or can’t keep up with unreasonable demands.
Teamster members met with Amazon workers across the country on July 7th 2021 to discuss working conditions and union organizing. Thank you to all the Amazon workers who stopped and chatted with us!
