GMB RESPONDS TO AMAZON CLOSURES

Kick in the teeth for Amazon staff who worked themselves into the ground during Christmas, says GMB Union

GMB Union has responded to the closure of three Amazon fulfilment centres

Steve Garelick, GMB Organiser, said:

“This is a real kick in the teeth for Amazon staff who worked themselves into the ground during the festive rush.

“Hard-up Amazon workers can’t suddenly be expected to up sticks and move to a different fulfilment centre which may be many miles away. local workers who may not be in a position to take roles so far away from where they live.

“Amazon has failed to bring a stable employment model due to their long-standing health and safety issues and poor workplace practices.

“To move forward with stability, Amazon needs ot engage with the workforce through their union GMB.”
