The GMB will be demonstrating outside the Amazon Fulfillment Centre, Power Station Road, Rugeley WS15 1LX,( parking on the Colliers Pub or McDonalds) on Friday the 19th of July at 4.30pm. The protests are around the continuing attacks on their members.

This anti-trade union company has appalling Health and Safety conditions, which have seen 115 people leave site by ambulance. The high pressured work environment has led to pregnant women miscarrying. Workers have avoided drinking water, so that they don’t have to use the toilet and miss achieving a hidden target of work
We really need your support and would love you to join us! We’re asking you to show your solidarity and support and to help us to be the voice for Amazon workers. Please bring along your banners, flags, friends, family and comrades and let’s show Amazon we are not going away!

There will be a number of speakers at the site, some Amazon workers from Spain that have been on strike and Lee Barron, the TUC Regional Secretary.

Following the protest, you will be welcome to join everyone for free food and drinks at the Miners Welfare club, Sandy Lane, Rugeley, Staffordshire, WS15 2LB.
