the event to take place on Friday, 23rd November 2018 in support of workers being exploited and being put at risk of serious injury by Amazon
The event is taking place outside the Amazon Warehouse in Rugeley from 5pm until 6pm followed by a short march to the Lea Hall Miners Welfare Centre and Social Club in the centre of Rugeley, where there will be speakers, food and music from Grace Petrie.
Please bring any Branch banners, as it would be great to see as many banners as possible. Trades Union Councils have been invited.
Amazon’s response to our Officers requests to meet to try to resolve some of the issues that are putting our members at risk have been met with a 6 page Lawyer’s letter. This cannot go on; the workers on the inside have no voice and I would like you to help me to speak for them and encourage Amazon to meet with the GMB.
