Support Amazon Workers in Alabama – Help Make Black History
241 Calhoun Street
Cincinnati Workers Join Outpouring of Solidarity for Alabama Amazon Workers. Host 1 of 40+ Actions Set for February 20
From Mississippi to Connecticut, North Carolina to California, workers, labor and community activists have resoundingly responded to the call for a National Day of Solidarity with Alabama Amazon Workers issued by the Southern Workers Assembly.
More than 40 actions (and counting!) are now planned to mobilize solidarity with the workers in Bessemer and to tell Amazon: Victory to the workers! Union-busting has got to go!
Amazon is spending tens of thousands of dollars each day on the most vile union busters around – Morgan Lewis – because they know this historic struggle being waged by the workers in Bessemer is inspiring Amazon and other workers to organize on their jobs, and they know that when workers build power, that means less profit for them. What makes this struggle even more significant is that it is taking place in the right-to-work South, and of the nearly 6,000 workers at the Bessemer warehouse, more than 70% are Black.
That’s why the solidarity actions on February 20 are so critical to the outcome of this struggle!
No matter their size, every action on Saturday will bolster the workers in Bessemer and help open up a broader campaign to organize Amazon and other workers. Visit the Support Alabama Amazon Workers website linked below to find materials that may be used for the actions.
