Join us for a meeting to plan our rally on the International Day of Solidarity with Alabama Amazon Workers.
SDSA is holding another rally on Sat. March 20th at 2 pm to support the Alabama Amazon warehouse workers who are fighting to form the nation’s first union at an Amazon workplace!!
Nearly 5,800 workers, 70% of whom are Black, have begun standing up against the second largest company in the country and the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos. In 2020, Bezos made $35 MILLION PER HOUR, while most Amazon workers made only $15 per hour. They also work under grueling, unsafe, stressful conditions, risking their lives during the pandemic. If this union election wins, the impact on labor organizing in the south and around the country, on building BIPOC-led worker power, would be enormous. However, Amazon has spent nearly $10,000 PER DAY on a vicious propaganda campaign to pressure workers to vote against unionizing.
A strong show of solidarity here in Amazon’s hometown will send a powerful message to the Alabama workers that we’ve got their back. Come help boost the media coverage for our rally at the international headquarters of this corporate behemoth on this International Day of Action!
Speakers include Amazon warehouse workers.
The rally will also educate people about the PRO Act, which would remove legal obstacles to unionization, and we will call on President Biden and the Senate to pass this crucial bill.
Please RSVP for the rally here! (The rally will be socially distanced.)
