Shop Floor Organizing at Amazon w/ Amazonians United Chicagoland
Ruby and Zama, members of Amazonians United, join the show to discuss their methods of shop floor organizing and direct unionism.
They share stories of how AU emerged, initially through breaking bread and resocializing the workplace, to their first direct action demanding access to water in the shop.
We also discussed the dismissal of AU by proponents of business unionism, and offer a critique of conventional labor union practices.
