Summary

UC Berkeley report: Amazon fails to meet international labor standards despite claims of compliance

Business case

 

Amazon’s just-announced “freedom of association policy” fails to comply with international human rights standards for workers involved in union organizing, finds a report published today by the UC Berkeley Labor Center and Berkeley Law’s Center for Law and Work. The report, Failure to Deliver: Assessing Amazon’s Freedom of Association Policy under International Labor Standards, provides a legal analysis of Amazon’s new policy pledging to fulfill International Labor Organization and United Nations norms on workers’ organizing rights even when national labor law does not require meeting these international standards.
