Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:48:44 +0300

On the night of July 13 in the city center street. St. Martin hung a banner for profits in the corporate divisions Amazon, as part of the corporate solidarity with the workers. Photo billboard placed on your website Poznan group of Manufacture: ---- In other areas of the city there are also processing billboards advertising Amazon: ---- At. 11 took place while the press conference organized by the Workers' Initiative CMOs operating in the Amazon on developments in relation and requests of employees. Employees are now working on a 11.5-hour shifts for low wages, in connection with the ongoing hot time due to special sales, where Jeff Bezos earns millions more. ---- Information from OZZ Amazon Initiative: ---- International action "Safe Pack" in the Amazon. We work safely and we demand rises!

This week Amazon Prime celebrated Day - one of the biggest sell-off during the year. For the company, this means another record sales (US analysts estimate that Amazon sold last year, the day the goods worth 600 million dollars) for employees extra days of work, leave frozen by the first half of July, changes after 11.5 hours, fatigue caused by lack of time to sleep and private life. In addition, for several months the company intensifies pressures on workers, including controlling the number of outputs and minutes spent in the toilet, or prohibiting calls during working hours.

Therefore, at this time, the Workers' Initiative organized a campaign "Safe Pack", reminding employees about it, that in this difficult time to remember about your health and safety.

The leaflet for workers write:

"One of the most common causes of accidents at work are RUSH, PRESSURE FROM THE SUPERIORS AND ROUTINE! We are working like crazy to forget about instructions, regulations, precautions, excessive physical stress, to drink, a break from routine. Meanwhile, each activity should be given enough time to make sure that it was done in compliance with all safety and quality. Do not go overboard with the pace, work safely! "

See more about. Action "Safe Pack"

The action is international, it involves the employees of France i Niemiec. Currently in several warehouses in Germany last strikes. Workers are demanding the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which would guarantee them higher wages.

We also appeal through a raise. In those days, the company once again trying to beat records of sent packets. What are the employees of this? At most corporate shirts. We will not accept it. We demand that the giant company's revenue (35.7 billion dollars. For the first quarter of 2017.), Which are obtained through our work, reflected in the wages of workers.

The company has just finished a review of salaries. Amazon sets the amount of annual increases based on data rates in the region and the industry, or information about unemployment. This method of calculating wages leads to the perpetuation of inequality. We demand that the company no longer treat us as cheap labor, and raised our wages according to which revenues are obtained.

In April and May 2017. IP probe conducted to investigate the mood of the crew. On the basis directed to Amazon's new demands. The most important demands were:

Increases in the base rate by 30%
The introduction of the thirteenth salary like the French Amazon
Raising internship modeled on the German Amazon
"Travel under the pear tree" from the Social Fund
Increases in demand is entirely justified in the face of growing the company's revenue, economic recovery, a decline in unemployment and increase in the minimum wage. The rates offered by Amazon are not competitive: wages collar worker in the logistics sector in Wielkopolska reached in 2016. Between 2600 zl (first quartile) and 3900 zl (third quartile), and in Lower Silesia in 2400 zl (first quartile), 3600 zl (third quartile) - according to the report "market Insights 2017 Property market Warehouse" Colliers International. This means that three-quarters of all employees logistics earned to zl 3600-3900, while the average height Amazonie base salary worker storage (level 1) is the average of 2618.44 gr, and average gross (including overtime, bonuses, and additives) was in the first quarter of 2017. only 3072.58 zl (for information on the Fund Payroll).
