A Labor Notes Conference Workshop:
AMAZON, UPS, USPS: WORKERS FIGHTING BACK IN THE
AGE OF E-COMMERCE INTERNATIONAL BALLROOM A
The package business is booming, as ordering everything
online becomes the norm. Public and private parcel companies
influence each other’s standards and sometimes even handle
the same packages in a complex supply chain. Panelists will
compare their workplace concerns—including workload and
staffing, unsafe conditions, supervisory harassment, and
growing temporary workforces—and discuss strategies to fight
back, in bargaining and through shop floor action.
�Marvin Harvey, Amazon warehouse worker
�Nick Perry, Teamsters 413
�Keith Richardson, American Postal Workers Union, Chicago
� Facilitator: Melissa Rakestraw, Letter Carriers 825
