Amazon fair treatment campaign targets Sheffield

A NATIONWIDE campaign to win union rights and fair treatment for workers at online retailer Amazon is now targeting the multinational company in Sheffield.

Union Unite is running a mobile campaign targeting different delivery centres in Britain for protests against the company.

The union is also promoting a confidential telephone hotline for Amazon staff to blow the whistle on its treatment of workers.

The campaign moved to Sheffield in South Yorkshire today.

Unite executive officer Sharon Graham said: “Amazon’s profits have tripled off the backs of workers who have been essential during the pandemic.

“But the company continues to be plagued by reports of poor working conditions and anti-union tactics.

“Amazon workers are not currently free to join a union without fear, and without obstruction and propaganda being deployed against them.

“Workers have serious concerns about issues such as bullying, mandatory overtime, intense surveillance, break-neck production targets and much more besides.”

The whistleblower hotline is 08000 14 14 61.
