WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marc Perrone, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), issued the following statement regarding Amazon’s 2018 Prime Day.
“Hard-working families don’t need more deals from Amazon – they need reassurances that this company isn’t going to destroy more American jobs.
“We find it alarming that Amazon’s entire business model is attempting to replace millions of jobs with technology.
“Our society needs to talk less about Amazon’s Prime Day sales and more about the serious economic danger Amazon poses to every community in America.”
The UFCW is the largest private sector union in the United States, representing 1.3 million professionals and their families in grocery stores, meatpacking, food processing, retail shops and other industries.
Our members help put food on our nation’s tables and serve customers in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. Learn more about the UFCW at www.ufcw.org.
