Warehouse workers in the Inland Empire stand in solidarity with the workers at JFK8 in Staten Island who just formed the first-ever union at an Amazon facility.

Workers in New York showed that by working together we can win a voice on the job, better working conditions and stand up to major international corporations like Amazon. In Southern California we know all too well about wages that don’t keep up with the cost of living, dangerous working conditions and unsafe daily quotas.

We live and work in an area dominated by warehouses and we pay the price in the quality of our air and the quality of our jobs, but we are working to create a better future and lift the voices of workers and our community.

New York Amazon workers are an inspiration and a model for what is possible.
