Bezos still in charge – Putin once stepped down, says GMB Union

Amazon worker safety will not improve until it embraces unions says GMB as the company welcomes a new CEO today.

Amazon will not move on and embrace fundamental change to deliver better safety standards until they sit down with unions like GMB across the world.

Mick Rix, GMB National Officer

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos will be succeeded Chief exec by Andy Jassy, while Bezos takes up the role of Executive Chair.

Mick Rix, GMB National Officer, said:

“Make no mistake, Jeff Bezos will still be pulling the strings.

“Putin stepped down as President once and became prime minister.

"Amazon will not move on and embrace fundamental change to deliver better safety standards until they sit down with unions like GMB across the world, embrace collective bargaining and give the workers the independent voice they so badly need.”
