CFA Supports Unionizing Amazon Workers
The California Faculty Association supports all warehouse workers for Amazon, and we rise in solidarity with the 5,800 Amazon warehouse workers in Bessemer, Alabama, who are undergoing a union vote amidst the online retailer’s anti-union activities. CFA condemns Amazon’s deplorable treatment of the predominately Black warehouse workers in Bessemer, its mistreatment of warehouse and delivery drivers throughout the world, and its union-busting tactics. CFA believes that we all deserve a voice at work, access to good jobs that pay living wages, and a safe work place free from dehumanizing conditions, including racism, sexism, and all forms of discrimination. When workers are unionized, we achieve those goals, rebalance our economy, and strengthen our democracy. Read CFA’s full solidarity statement here.
