No-one should be scared about leaving work in an ambulance. But that’s the reality hundreds of Amazon warehouse workers face each and every shift.

It’s time for a parliamentary inquiry into Amazon.

There have been more than 600 ambulance call-outs to Amazon warehouses over the past three years.

And all the while, billionaire boss Jeff Bezos – the richest man in the word – is refusing to give workers basic rights.

GMB Union wants to work with Amazon to improve working conditions for our members. But so far, Amazon are refusing to recognise, or even meet with, the union.

Amazon whack-a-mole: the online game

You’ve just got a new summer job as an Amazon parcel picker. Can you pick fast enough to afford a summer holiday?

The game is fun and interactive, but has a serious message throughout: no-one should be scared of leaving work in an ambulance. Because that’s the reality workers at Amazon face.
