Empowering Warehouse Workers
The WWRC supports workers to make positive changes on the job and speak up for safety and higher pay for them and their coworkers.
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.
In the City of San Bernardino we support and work with Amazon workers organizing to improve their jobs.
Amazon opened KSBD, an air hub located at the San Bernardino Airport, 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, overall pay increases, access to fans and water and other safety measures. In 2022 more than 150 workers went on strike twice to secure these victories.
Inland Empire Amazon Workers United is leading a local movement to demand higher standards from Amazon, the region’s and California’s largest private sector employer.
