Amazon Air Hub Workers Launch Union Campaign
Posted On: Nov 23, 2022
Nov. 23, 2022 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | A group of workers who handle planes and packages at Amazon’s national air hub at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) are trying to unionize the facility, demanding $30 per hour in starting wages and other benefits. The organizing committee says it is looking to affiliate with one of the national unions trying to organize workers at the giant online retailer, which has a history of aggressively combating efforts to form unions at its fulfillment centers. “We’re working to live, not living to work. Amazon’s annual turnover rate is 150% because we’re running ground support equipment (GSE), supervising planeside operations, and training our co-workers without a real pay incentive. We deserve to be paid for those responsibilities and have real time off for ourselves and our families,” said Steven Kelley, one of the group’s leaders.
