(en) Poland, ozzip.pl: Action Safe Package in Amazon. In Germany, protests, strikes and blockades in Berlin [machine translation]
Mon, 27 Nov 2017 09:06:19 +0200
source: https://makeamazonpay.org/ ---- In Germany there is a week of action under the
slogan "Make Amazon pay" - that is, "Let Amazon pay". For what? The campaign initiators
are responsible for: the working conditions that cause illness, the permanent control of
the workers, the pressure on performance. Employees will be min. in Leipzig. The
culmination will be a protest under the magazine in Berlin on November 24 in "Black
Friday". ---- In the international action "Make Amazon Pay" is not about boycott Amazon,
but about a broad campaign to improve working conditions ( see more ). There will be many
debates, happenings, press conferences - more at www.makeamazonpay.org . In Berlin, there
will be delegations from various magazines, including Poznan. As part of the campaign, a
brochure was published, which included an interview with a member of the OZZ Workers'
Initiative on working conditions and organization in the Polish Amazon ( see PDF ).
Amazon has for years refused to sign a collective agreement in Germany demanded by
employees and the Verdi union. Also in Poland the corporation refuses to consult with
payroll and other wage components. From 2016, the collective labor dispute of the OZZ
Workers' Initiative has been taken up for increases, breaks, graphics, employee shares.
The Employee Initiative also criticizes Amazon for:
- the treatment of agency workers who are dismissed overnight without a word of explanation
- for harsh evaluation of their work in the form of negative feedback, which ends with a
recommendation for dismissal due to not complying with high standards;
- for the unclear performance bonus rules
- for the incapacitation of workers on medical leave in their homes by an outside company
and the unjustified suspension of sick pay
Amazona employees are organized around the world. But these efforts will be effective only
if they are not limited to a few magazines or one country. That is why the Employee
Initiative seeks to coordinate the activities: in July 2017, we also conducted "Safe Pack"
campaigns in Poland, France and Germany, where many employees were eager to participate.
The incidence in many Amazon magazines is high due to the nature of the work itself. In
the last days of the IP, Amazon has encouraged employees to take part in a Safe Pack
campaign that involves safe work and respect for all rules, so that they can take care of
their own health.
From the leaflet distributed before Amazon in Sadas:
It is based on the fact that we work safely, following all the rules - we care about our
health and do not succumb when anyone tries to push us or encourage us to circumvent the
rules of safety and health. It's better to work slowly, strictly according to the rules
... and pack "safe packages"!
Do not over temp, work safely! Amazon urges employees to be obsessed with customers.
Therefore, we make every effort to ensure that the products reach them in perfect
condition. This will help us to think carefully about every activity we perform. In this
way we will ensure the highest standards, guaranteeing customer satisfaction.
The safe package contains an additional invaluable cargo - the safety and health of the
employees. One of the most common causes of accidents at work is POPE, PRESENTATION OF
TRANSFERRED PARTIES AND RUNNING! Working out like crazy, we forget the instructions, the
rules, the caution, the excessive physical strain, the need to replenish the flu, rest
from the routine. We forget about our health.
At the same time, each activity should be given sufficient time to ensure that it is
carried out with all safety and quality rules. Every customer expects his package to be
packed neatly - in safe working conditions and for decent pay!
We announce "safety hours" or "safe hours"!
