The next “Amazon Workers’ Cross-border Meeting” will take place from Friday, September 28, to Sunday, September 30, 2018, in Bad Hersfeld, Germany.
Amazon workers from different countries have met several times since 2015 to discuss their situation and coordinate actions. In Bad Hersfeld we will focus on the experiences of recent strikes, the Safe Package actions, working conditions and targets, and more.
On Friday, September 28, starting at 2 p.m., we will meet in front of the local Amazon warehouse FRA3 (Amazonstraße 1, 36251 Bad Hersfeld).
Also on Friday, at 7 p.m. we will have a public meeting at Falkenheim (Abteiweg 5, 36251 Bad Hersfeld) with workers from Germany, Poland, France, Spain, and the USA.
Everyone is invited to come to these two events, including workers, supporters, and journalists. For more information, see the https://amworkers.wordpress.com.
