  • Proud 21 year Teamster here. Yes, all unions have their problems BUT the only way to have any dignity on the job and having reasonable workplace rules is through a negotiated contract! Think about it this way. These companies sign contracts with customers, vendors etc to lay out the law of the land so, why is it wrong for these companies to have contracts with their employees spelling out workplace rules and compensation? The FACT of the matter is, unions built what once was a thriving middle class. In nearly every single industry you can name and, even if your particular company isn’t unionized, the fact that unions were once so prevalent and strong, they actually forced non union companies to stay somewhat competitive with unionized companies as far as wages and benefits we’re concerned if for no other reason than to attempt to keep employees from organizing and joining a union! It’s NO COINCIDENCE that real wages and the worsening wage inequality have basically mirrored the overall decline in private sector unions since 1980.

  • If the union stuff doesn’t pay off it’s because they are manipulated and paid off in someway like they’re like OK we’re going to give you a raise and all these things and either they’re going to renege on it or they’re going to give it to them but it’s definitely physically more responsible to give whatever they’re promising them then to possibly companywide come out with the union and I wonder if it’s for those individuals that the bribing or will it go to everyone who even voted to unionize because that would be weird and what about the newbies

  • Easy fix: Pay per hour , and pay overpay workhours when route is not finished. Give 20 minute payed break every 2h of driving , and additionally one full hour payed payed break every day. Use quota only for performance reports and contract extension or promotions not pay. Look at EU for these kind of rules set in law. No need to reinvent things. PS: Why do you have to vote for unionising? Isn't it law that you can unionise no matter what? If only 20% want to form a union , just have a 20% onion and still have legal right to sit on board meetings and strike and such .. or what is the law in USA? (this is practice in EU)

They demand that you arrive at their facility at a certain time, then when you arrive, they make you wait for hours before they actually start loading your trailer, causing you to lose all the time you could be driving.

They set me up in a large industrial/residential area and a lot of the time my truck was overloaded to the point I couldn't get to certain things that had to be delivered. THEN, my boss sold my contract to another contracted who added an entirely new area to my already large area of delivery and expected me to be able to do it within the same timeframe. At least with my previous boss he'd have guys who were done with their routes help me out, but the new boss couldn't be bothered.

I don’t understand why they took away our $2 raises for the pandemic.. when we are STILL in one! One top of that we will be going into 10hours shifts soon. Alot of employees are leaving because theyve force us to chose a insane shift time that conflicts with alot of people who have children. I think i might pass out one of these days.

  • Jebus Khrist, why isn't there a more progressive alternative to Amazon out there or on the horizon? I remember seven or eight years ago how some progressives were encouraging people to not use Amazon, and to find other sourcing options, like 'brick and mortar' businesses, other online sites, etc. Also, what happened to the Amazon workers vote to unionize? I was hearing so much talk about it in the progressive world over the past week or two, highly anticipating the vote count, ...now.... nothing; haven't heard a peep about it. How long does it take to do a vote and tally the results, particularly in one state?

  • We need to nationalize Amazon. We don’t need a middleman parasite getting rich off all of us, and dehumanizing wage-slaves.

  • Well they aren't "making their workers pee in bottles". What we know is that there are a few reports by workers, specifically delivery drivers who claim that the quotas they are expected to meet are too unrealistic to achieve without foregoing breaks. Which means that they're alleging that they're strapped for time, specifically time to use the restroom and are instead having to piss in bottles and shit in bags. Which has also become an issue when the vehicles are returned and the human waste is left during handover by the driver. It's either the case that the quotas are too unrealistic or there is a small minority of personnel who are either inefficient and or just plain gross. It's notable that the camera tracking system set to be implemented in these delivery vehicles which TYT has rallied against would go a way to actually providing data that proves if Amazon management is unrealistic in its expectation of its personnel to meet the quotas they set.

    • @Wayne Morgan Yeeeaaaahhh. I'm not putting any faith in a massive multinational corporation to be "doing the right thin g". This just screams of micromanagement.

    • @Erica Rogers I thinks it's moreso the case that they're looking at the bevy of drivers that don't seem to have an issue or at the very least haven't reported it and asking is this a legitimate concern as it pertains to the quotas or are these few just so inefficient that keeping them isn't really worth their while when there's a burgeoning workforce out there especially thanks to covid.

    • Or they could just get more Draconian. "Ohhh, noticed you didn't have enough time to stop for a pee there, buddy and you had to pee in a bottle? Yeeeeeaaaahhhhh, that's going to make us look bad. You're fired. Oh, you want more realistic drop-off times? That sounds a lot like an attempt to unionize. SECURITY!!!"

  • I'd be a terrible Amazon employee, because NOBODY is going to tell me when I can or cannot stop for a bathroom break or take a lunch. I've had bosses that were nice people, but would give me way too many deliveries at times. However, they were constantly making sure that I was taking breaks. One of those employers were so cool that they told me to stop deliveries to come back to the office for lunch or to go get bubble tea with them... I usually met my quotas, but if there were days that I didn't, it was totally fine.

  • Solution is to put bathrooms on the cargo vans. If RVs can do it, cargo vans can too. Build the bathrooms to be swapped / re-processed quickly overnight at distribution centers.

    • Yeah, that's a solution. Or, maybe allow enough time to go to the bathroom.

    • I think what you meant to say is _the solution is to democratize the workplace & plan our economy around surplus value of labor serving the people instead of exploiting people serving the rich by using them as a source of surplus value to be stolen_ but okay 🤔

    • That sounds absurdly expensive when you can just let drivers use public bathrooms

  • Amazon,Walmart and JP Morgan Chase are the worst corporations and they all have tracking system for bathroom breaks. Chase was only place I had to write everything thing I done for the day and it determined if I was productive enough at the end of day. Their standard bathroom breaks time were already included but media only focuses on retail and fast food hourly workers.

    • @Pranay I'm not lying. Of course they have mandatory breaks - that's the law, it's not even up to the employer whether they're going to have breaks or not. But they still have goals they have to hit on their routes and often make choices like this to save time. If you want evidence, get a job in the postal service or ask your mail carrier if they or someone they know pisses in their truck.

      MakingnewnamesisdumbMakingnewnamesisdumb5 ditë më parë
    • @Makingnewnamesisdumb That was rather vague. A LOT of jobs have overbearing bosses. It depends entirely on the person. Why should a supervisor not sometimes meet the carriers en route? I don't understand your complaint there. The benefits are good. The pay is good. The security is good. Sorry if working conditions aren't perfect, but that's not what unions are for anyways. They're not meant to protect you from being bullied by bosses you don't like. That much of it is just life. Pissing in a bottle is a whole other category. That's nothing like just having to put up with a narcissistic boss. It's broad company policy that drives the behavior, henpecking and personality conflicts are not the issue.
