Teamsters March on Amazon HQ, Escalate Union Campaign
Updated On: Sep 21, 2022
Sept. 21, 2022 | ORGANIZING | (Click to enlarge image.) Teamsters leaders, including Sean O’Brien, general president of the union, brought their campaign to organize Amazon warehouse and logistics workers to the company’s doorstep in Seattle [Tuesday] afternoon. A large crowd marched past the Amazon Spheres and the company’s headquarters towers, filling the streets north of downtown Seattle and delivering loud chants in protest of Amazon and its founder, Jeff Bezos. “Amazon should be afraid — the Teamsters are here standing shoulder-to-shoulder with so many communities demanding change,” O’Brien said in a statement. The Teamsters accuse Amazon of mistreating warehouse and logistics workers and allege that the company has illegally thwarted efforts to unionize its fulfillment centers in some parts of the country. ‘The Teamsters aren’t going away,” O’Brien said. “Wherever Amazon abuses workers, we’ll be there…” GeekWire  Related: 1,000 Teamsters rally at Amazon HQ   Watch video here
