Former Amazon.com Inc. workers and labour organizers will visit some of the e-commerce giant’s Quebec locations today as part of a global movement urging the company to stop “squeezing” workers, communities and the planet.
Mostafa Henaway, a former Amazon worker and labour activist with the Immigrant Workers Center, says he and others will approach workers at the YUL2 and DXT6 facilities in Lachine to remind them of their rights and encourage their employer to do better.
The visit timed to Black Friday — one of the Seattle-based firm’s busiest periods — is meant to push the company to pay fair wages, taxes and better account for its impact on the environment.
It’s part of the Make Amazon Pay movement, which will see Amazon workers and labour rights groups in at least 30 countries, including the U.S. and England, strike or rally in support of fair wages and climate change action.
