First Amazon delivery workers to unionize continue to strike

Some Amazon unions have sprung up in the past few years, but Amazon delivery workers have always remained union-free. Until, that is, 84 Amazon delivery drivers in Palmdale, California, formed a union in June. They were employees of a firm called Battle Tested Strategies (BTS), one of 3,000 “delivery service partners” (DSPs) that works with Amazon around the world. Amazon subsequently cancelled their agreement with BTS and the drivers went on strike. The drivers claim they are joint-employees of Amazon. Amazon claims they are not their employees. Pickets have sporadically been set up, supporting the drivers, at Amazon DCs in Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Connecticut. No Canadian DCs have been affected
