Shakopee workers are expected to be joined by Amazon workers traveling from the company’s headquarters in Seattle. The tech workers traveling to Minnesota are part of Amazon Employees for Climate Justice, a group that has pressured Amazon to take action on the climate crisis.
Pilots for Amazon Air, the company’s air cargo operation, also said they “stand in solidarity with the warehouse workers” in Shakopee. They are sending a pilot to the Minnesota protest.
“As we know firsthand, Amazon’s business model too often neglects the well-being of the workers who make the e-commerce giant so incredibly successful,” said Daniel Wells, a union leader representing pilots who fly for Amazon Air.
