Empowering Warehouse Workers
The WWRC supports Inland Empire Amazon Workers United who are demanding a safe workplace, a pay increase, and an end to retaliation at work.
In the heart of America’s supply chain – San Bernardino, California – hundreds of workers are organizing to change working conditions at Amazon’s Air Freight Fulfillment Center, KSBD. It’s the company’s western region air hub and one of only three air hubs in the nation.
Workers are demanding a $5 increase in pay, improved health and safety standards and an end to retaliation at the warehouse.
KSBD opened in March 2021 amidst community concern and opposition around job quality and air pollution. Amazon promised quality jobs, but has failed to deliver. Since the opening, workers have organized in response to low pay, illness-inducing heat, and brutal working conditions. In addition to a new rest area, workers have also won an increase in pay for night shifts.
These Amazon workers are leading a local movement to demand higher standards from Amazon, the region’s and California’s largest private sector employer.
About the WWRC
For 10 years the Warehouse Worker Resource Center has worked with warehouse workers in the Inland Empire. We are a nonprofit organization with a mission to protect and support workers.
We work with people who want to make a change at their job. In the warehousing and logistics industry injuries and wages stolen by your employer are too common. The WWRC provides resources, legal support and guidance in ending these practices and winning justice. There is a long history of workers who have spoken up to win the wages they are owed, protect themselves and their coworkers and speak out against discrimination at work.
