Amazon Taken to Task by Workers in Air Freight Facility

Amazon Taken to Task by Workers in Air Freight Facility

Warehouse workers in Amazon’s air freight facility in San Bernardino, have won concessions to help improve their working conditions

In yet another example of how poorly Amazon treats its blue collar workers, warehouse employees at the 658,500-square foot centre (known as KSBD) had to bring in their own thermometers to document inside and outside temperatures at the facilities which they claim were well above Amazon’s temperature readings – topping 100 degrees for 18 days in August.

In August, Amazon said the highest recorded temperature inside KSBD was 77 degrees.

In response to the protest, the company increased cool-down breaks as well as access to water, ice and electrolyte packets. Amazon also increased fans inside the facility, although permanent fans have yet to be installed.

Housed at the former Norton Airforce Base, KSBD operates 14 daily flights that move products in and out of the 24-hour facility. Workers process prepackaged merchandise that’s trucked or flown in from other Amazon facilities and distributed to markets across the country.
