It’s no secret that Amazon has been less than friendly to its workers who are trying to unionize. And given the way Amazon has wormed its way into the workings of just about everything, it’s hard to avoid shopping with the retail giant. If you still want to do something to help workers on Prime Day, Sign a petitionThat is what you should be requestingAmazon makes it safer to work and stops union-busting Stop Amazon from mandating overtime for Prime Day. It’s literally the least you can do.

“In order to fulfill orders, workers are forced to dig through dangerously overstuffed bins, heavy boxes falling causing sprains and concussions, retrieving items from collapsing bins and struggling to meet back-breaking quotas,” the petition, started by Amazon’s ALB1 warehouse in Schodack, New York, explains.

“It’s even worse on Prime Day, when the company’s already-lackluster on-site care is overwhelmed, and workers are forced to work injured. Amazon’s injury rate is 80% higher than similar companies’ injured worker rate. There’s a reason why Amazon has a 150% annual employee turnover rate,” the petition reads.

What are the workers asking you to do? Sign a petition.

“Please sign petition below to demand that Amazon recognizes the Amazon Labor Union, creates safer conditions, respects worker health, and stop its rampant union-busting,” the petition reads.

Just signed the petition 923 peopleThe goal is to get 1,000 people to sign up.

Amazon invented a holiday from nothing. Many other companies are availableIt is believed that the retailer would like to add another Prime Day sometime in the future. Later in the calendar yearCNBC says that this is the case. Double the Prime Days, double the injury potential!

If you’re addicted to the convenience of Amazon, that’s completely understandable. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t demand a safer workplace for all. Simply sign the petition. It only takes a couple of seconds.
