We want Amazon to sign a ‘declaration of neutrality’ that will guarantee workers a voice at work and freedom from fear. This is what it looks like.
AMAZON acknowledges the right to freedom of association in line with the United Nations Global Compact and paragraph 2 of the ETI Base Code and as such we agree to the following:
- We will not oppose the decision of any worker to freely join a trade union of their choice.
- We accept that where the same or similar issues affect a number of workers that their union may then raise these issues with Amazon.
- We will allow union representatives reasonable access to common areas in Amazon workplaces in order to meet with workers.
- We will not discriminate in any way against any worker for being a member of a trade union.
We also agree to distribute this declaration to Amazon management in Britain and Ireland and make reasonable efforts to ensure that all workers in Amazon’s British and Irish workplaces, including those employed by sub-contractors or through a contract for services, are aware of its contents.
