Media Advisory for Mon., Mar. 22, 2021 – Workers Set to Rally in Support of Unionizing Alabama Amazon Workers, Protesting Union-Busting Firm

Labor unions, clergy, and community members will rally in solidarity with the BAmazon Union members in Alabama and protest the company’s union busting tactics. 

(Los Angeles, CA) Elected officials, clergy, labor unions, and community members will rally on Monday, March 22 in Downtown Los Angeles in support of the unionizing efforts of the Alabama Amazon workers and calling attention to the ever growing union busting industry and culture used to suppress workers rights across the nation. 

The march will begin at Grand Park, converging at the front of the headquarters of Morgan Lewis, the notorious union-busting firm used by Amazon and some of the largest corporations in the world. Every year, corporations spend billions of dollars on union-busting consultants to suppress the voice of workers.

The union election in Bessemer, Alabama has received national attention over the last few months as workers fight to join Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union/UFCW, potentially establishing the first unionized facility in the company’s history. 

Workers have alleged serious union busting tactics by the company including the changing of traffic light timing and the posting of anti-union propaganda in restroom stalls
