GMB says ‘Amazon’s propaganda isn’t fooling anyone’ as the company ditches a scheme that paid staff to paint a positive image of working in its warehouses on social media.

Mick Rix, GMB National Officer, said:

“Amazon’s paid propaganda isn’t fooling anyone. 

“Too many workers Amazon workers in the UK -  and around the world  - report exhaustion due to dehumanising work methods.

 “Year upon year there are increases in reportable injuries.

“Amazon bosses are in denial; they are conning the public about the true working conditions in Amazon warehouses.

“GMB research shows every year an increasing and grossly unacceptable number of workers suffering  injuries - even requiring an ambulance to take them to hospital.

“Instead of denial and burying their heads in the sand, it’s time for the company to talk to GMB and make Amazon a great, safe place to work.”
