GMB, the union for Amazon workers, has responded to Labour's vow to challenge the 'tax and wage cheat' culture of multinational companies.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Companies like Amazon think they’re untouchable - they run rough shod over communities, exploiting workers who are trying to put food on the table and a roof over their families’ heads.

"Amazon has had so many opportunities to do the right thing, to treat their workforce as people, not robots.

"To stop people being stretchered out of their warehouses in ambulances but they choose not to.

"Under Labour’s plans, workers would have new rights to organise and unions wouldn’t be locked out when people are crying out for our help, safety and decent pay.

"It’s high time the company put their hand in their pocket and paid their fair share of tax like the rest of us - and under Labour they will.”
