Amazon Delivery Drivers Unionized. Now They Have to Prove They Work for Amazon.
Posted On: May 16, 2023
May 16, 2023 | ORGANIZING | Two weeks ago, a group of drivers working for an Amazon Delivery Service Partner (DSP) became the first unionized drivers in the company’s network of contractors when they ratified a union contract with the Teamsters. The ratification also confirmed the Teamsters’ first direct bargaining contact within Amazon’s vast web of workers, something the union has been working towards for some time. [...] To its credit, the owner of the DSP, Battle-Tested Strategies (BTS), voluntarily recognized the union and signed the collective bargaining agreement almost immediately. The problem? Amazon did not. It said that because the drivers were contracted by BTS, Amazon was not their employer and therefore would not have to come to the bargaining table. The union’s next step is proving that wrong. Vice  GETTY IMAGE
