Amazon, new Transnational Meeting in Leipzig

Accueil > Secteurs > Commerce et services > Amazon, new Transnational Meeting in Leipzig

The tenth transnational meeting of Amazon workers will be held from 27 to 29 September in Leipzig. Since 2015, Amazon workers have been meeting twice a year. The initiative, launched by warehouse employees from Poland and Germany, was subsequently extended to include representatives and staff representatives working in France, England, the United States and the Spanish State.

These self-organized meetings by core teams allow for the exchange of information, and work on common issues, such as managerial practice of the production rate target, conditions of temporary workers within Amazon, physical risks related to working conditions. They also aim to develop common strategies to resist and win new rights.

Last July, a strike movement organized simultaneously in warehouses in Germany, Poland, the United States and France during Prime Day allowed Amazon workers to make their demands heard.

Many of the trade union organizations in Amazon’s warehouses are members of our International Labor Network of Solidarity and Struggles. This international work, if it goes beyond the current contours of the Network (and that is very good !), is fully in line with our internationalist activity and ambitions.

Self-organization by workers is a practice we defend, and the International Labor Network of Solidarity and Struggles wishes to relay and support this initiative by Amazon workers.
