Amidst the start of the biggest shopping season of the year, U.K.-based trade union GMB is protesting against Amazon for what it calls "inhuman" working conditions. GMB alleges that conditions at Amazon's warehouses are so poor that they are causing injuries and illnesses for people working there. The union has also cited that ambulances had been called to Amazon warehouses 600 times over the past three years as of May, as revealed by a Freedom of Information request filed by the union (as reported by CNBC). GMB said that it expects hundreds of people to take part in the protests at five Amazon warehouses in the U.K. and also hopes workers in Italy and Spain to come forward.
Amazon, however, tried to refute claims of inhuman working conditions. "All of our sites are safe places to work and reports to the contrary are simply wrong," the e-commerce giant said. The company also mentioned that according to the U.K. Government's Health and Safety Executive, Amazon has over 40% fewer injuries on average than other transportation and warehousing companies in the U.K.
Amazon said, “We encourage everyone to compare our pay, benefits and working conditions to others and come see for yourself on one of the public tours we offer every day at our centers across the UK uk.amazonfctours.com."
